The scenic way to Wollongong

By scott - Posted on 20 March 2009

There are a couple of scenic entries to Wollongong depending on which direction you will be arriving from. If you are coming from the south along the Hume, take the 1st exit to Wollongong. This will take you along the Illawarra Highway, through the Southern Highlands and down Macquarie Pass through the Macquarie Pass National Park. Very scenic.

Coming from the north along the Princes Highway, take the Stanwell Park exit to follow Lawrence Hargrave Drive. Quite a nice drive in itself as you meander through Wollongong’s northern suburbs nestled between escarpment and ocean. Take note of the Sea Cliff Bridge at Coalcliff.

Both routes will add about 15 minutes onto your journey.
