Romantic things to do in Wollongong | Destination Wollongong


Here in Wollongong, we love to play Cupid. And we’re the perfect escape if you’re yearning for a romantic getaway that offers a mix of experiences. Other towns may play hard to get to, but not us –your bubble-filled bathtub in an ocean-facing Novotel suite awaits… just 60 minutes from Sydney.

And guess what? It turns out that “taking long walks on the beach” isn’t just a cliché. People really DO enjoy doing this, and we have loads of stunning sandy strips to pace up and down hand in hand. Of course, all that walking will give you quite the appetite, so grab a drink at one of the small bars, reserve a table at the Night Parrot Bar & Kitchen or Kneading Ruby, and take in a show at IPAC or the Sunset Cinema. If you are after a beautiful fine dining experience, you must try HarbourFront Restaurant

Of course, your idea of love might actually involve browsing boutique shops in Thirroul village, perusing the Bulli Markets, the kiss of an espresso at Lee & Me, or indulging in a massage or day spa. Your idea of love might be retail therapy at the stylish Wollongong Central. Or, do you hanker for new heights that only Touchdown Helicopters or Skydive Australia can deliver?

So, whether it’s romance, retail, or recreation, you’ll be sure to find your perfect match in Wollongong…
