This lovely seaside city lies on a narrow coastal strip with a distinct geography. It is eighty two kilometres south of Sydney, the third largest city in New South Wales lies in a coastal plain with the Tasman Sea on one side and a steep sandstone precipice known as the Illawarra Escarpment on the other side.
There is much to see and do here so renting from Budget Rent a Car at their location in town will be your best choice for getting to witness it all. The Royal Pacific Drive comes right through Wollongong, considered the main hub of the Drive, as it winds its way from the mountains to the sea, starting just south of Sydney and ending in the Shoalhaven region. This is a wonderful way to get to see the New South Wales coastline.
A great way to get to know the city is to take a self-guided Heritage Tour with twenty three locations. You will see the Town Hall, the Market Square, and Throsby’s Stockman’s Hut among other Heritage sites.
Of course beaches are never far away and with your Budget car hire they are there when you want them. There are actually seventeen surf beaches here which are patrolled and offer a lovely, relaxing beach experience. In addition the city has pools available including Ocean Rock Pools which give you the ocean experience without getting into the sand.
The suburb of Stanwell Park has many of the beaches which are challenging for accomplished surfers. Easier to reach with your Budget rental car they include Sandon Point, Bellambi and many others sure to test your skills.
