“Wollongong is a stunning coastal city surrounded by ocean and mountains just 1 hour south of Sydney. It is a thriving community and draws tourists from all over the world for its natural beauty, innovation and technology prowess and delicious food! With plans to build a huge Marina completed over the next few years, Wollongong will continue to grow which will increase work opportunity and see more families moving down from Sydney to start a life close to the beach!”
