Foodie | Destination Wollongong


Wollongong’s food and drink scene plays to its strengths with a variety of unique venues in which to sip, savour and celebrate at all hours of the day.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and it’s important you try them all – from Diggies famous pancakes and sunrise bowl to Levendi, Harbourfront and Pepe’s on the Beach.

In fact, making up your mind about where to go is probably the only problem you’ll face on your appetite adventures. From relaxed coastal vibe of Headlands Hotel or Towradgi Beach Hotel or inner-city niches such as Dagwood or Kneading Ruby, there’s a menu to suit every mouth!

For a unique experience, head up the hill to Glenbernie Orchard for the only cider in the world awarded GOLD three years running at the World Cider Awards. It’s a family run farm set on 100 acres, and you’re invited!

Then, as the sun gets low, head back to the city for the weekly Eat Street markets – a vibrant mix of international flavours all in one place. Or reserve a table at Steamers, Harbourfront or Palisade in the Novotel Northbeach.

The thing is, it’ll take about a year to get through them all… #sorrynotsorry.

" The Wollongong foodie scene is so underrated, you have to come and check out the delicious food and drinks whilst looking out at the beach "
