Welcome to Wollongong!

Whether you're an essential worker, home alone, or home-schooling; after a very looooong lockdown you well and truly deserve to reward yourself with a coffee, and a takeaway treat.

Hungry?

Lucky for you, Wollongong CBD is a foodie's delight, with a whole array of world-class cafes and restaurants open for takeaway.

Keen to hit the shops?

Currently, the only stores permitted to open are food and health or medicine stores. Although, many stores are offering click and collect - so you can still pick up an order while you're in the city. See who's still open in Wollongong Central shopping centre.
