Get directions Kneading Ruby

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.

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 actually be retail therapy at the stylish Wollongong Central – sure to tick all the boxes (and supply purchases in new ones). Or do you hanker for new heights that only Touchdown Helicopters or Tandem Skydiving can deliver?

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