Tired, burnt out and desperate for a holiday? Yep, we know how you feel.
Luckily, Wollongong is perfect for families and affordable too!
Sometimes a weekend away is all you need to recharge your batteries and families love escaping to Wollongong for some R&R. Only 90 mins south of Sydney, and 2.5 hours from Canberra.
There are plenty of reasons to go no further than Wollongong and the Illawarra. You can horse ride, ‘fly’ above the treetops, catch some water park action, get close to some cuddly critters, or simply stroll along the beaches. A range of bush walking trails offer beautiful views of the mountain surrounds and coastline.

Shellharbour is located only 90 minutes from Sydney and 2.5 hours from Canberra.

Whether you’re seeking a seaside escape, an adventure or a great value family holiday, you’ll be delighted with Shellharbour.
