Travel Tips for Wollongong
Visit the Pagoda
The Pagoda is of great spiritual importance to buddhists. Inside the Pagoda you can make a wish and sound the bell. We had great fun here too, posing in front of the Pagoda like this. The photo turned out quite well I think, and if I told you it was taken somewhere in Asia I could fool you!!
The unspoken rules of driving...
If your from interstate or overseas here are a few of the unspoken driving rules that not only apply for Wollongong, but pretty much all over Sydney...
1. If lanes are merging, you only have to let in one car at a time! Then each car behind you will also let in one car, therefore allowing the easy flow of traffic.
2. If someone allows you infront of them, do not forget the courtesy wave. Just a little signal with your hand to the revision mirror will suffice.
3. Never ever sit in the righthand lane. Merge into the right lane purely to overtake, and then quickly get back into the left.
I think the most important to remember are points no 1. and 2. Due to increasing amounts of roadrage, its just these little things that show gratitude that help ease otherwise tension filled situations!
Oh, and be familiar with the NSW roadrules before getting behind the wheel.
Wollongong is the gateway to the South Coast. Some better known surfing spots would consist of Helensburgh, Sandon Point and Bellambi Point in the North. Windang Island and Redsands to the south. There are many beautiful beaches with surfing oppotunities, these are just a sample... Dont forget Sunscreen!
Sublime Point Lookout
Woolongong is located behind the 4th point of land; the shortest point with the small white lighthouse on it.... in front of the point with the gigantic smokestack on it.
The lookout is truly a beautiful place. You'll listen to the calls of the birds in the forest behind you, and occasionally you might see a big white sulphur-crested cockatoo soar down towards the town below. The ocean was so calm this day that we could practically see every riffle of wind on the water.
Very basic restaurant. Nothing special here. Almost like card tables,and heaps of them with plain tablecloths. Nothing really special about the ambience whatsoever, but great for a cheap feed. I think this place is best for lunch to be honest! You wont need a booking... Order anything from soups to the dishes. The food is simple, but good, and best of all its cheap!
