Self-Drive | Destination Wollongong


Let your rubber hit the road to experience the best of the South Coast. Everything’s within easy reach, there’s a boot-load of experiences and Wollongong scenic drives… and it’s an Insta-snap sensation! Bald Hill, our unofficial front doorstep, sets you up for the super scenic Grand Pacific Drive. Head south along Sea Cliff Bridge, where you’ll feel like you’re starring in your own car advertisement.  Sydney to Wollongong is a popular science day trip experience for all Travellers.

Grand Pacific Drive forms a spine through the South Coast Australia region, taking in Wollongong’s northern beaches and cafes, through to the harbour and Lake Illawarra, before rolling south to Kiama’s famous blowhole, signature surf spots and even a cheeky winery or two.  

But there are more roads to explore – from Shellharbour Marina, quaint Jamberoo, the Southern Highlands, and beautiful Jervis Bay – where you’ll be rewarded with waterfalls, bushwalks, sublime picnic spots, original rainforests, pristine waterways or dramatic headlands.
