Instagram post 17910922144471089 Today is International Lighthouse Day and what's more fitting than celebrating not one, but two! 🙌 #Wollongong is the only place on the east coast of #Australia with two lighthouses. They’re a part of our history and have comforted travellers, guided them and kept them safe-and not to mention they sit atop some of the best views over our city. 📸: goodvibez_personalfitness #visitwollongong #wollongongpressplay

Dharawal Country

We would like to acknowledge Aboriginal people and their cultural and spiritual connection to this land. Their stories are written in the land and hold great significance to Aboriginal people from the mountains to the sea. As you travel through the Illawarra immerse yourself in the natural beauty of Dharawal Country.
