Takeaway near the Vaccination Hub

Welcome to Wollongong!

If you've just been vaxxed at the Hub - a big THANK YOU for doing your part to keep us all safe.

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.

Browse the cafes below, which are all located within 100m of the Vaccine Hub, or checkout our full list of CBD food venues open during lockdown.

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.

Treat yourself in Crown Street Mall
