Instagram post 17951990722586710 Enjoying the view over Wollongong’s coastline on the first day of summer! ☀️😎

With the weather warming up now is the perfect time to hit Wollongong’s coastal pools for that morning (or afternoon!) swim. 

Afterwards don’t forget a visit to one of the nearby cafes for that much needed morning coffee fix. A few favourites near the Continental pool (pictured) include; @northbeachkiosk, @levendikiosk, @northbeachpavilionkiosk ☕️
