A nice place to get almost what you want, with major brands almost all in one location: H&M, David Jones, YD. etc... and the major supermarkets, not to mention a huge range of cafes to chill. Parking can be limited, and NO free parking on...More

Wollongong didn't strike me as a place with much going on and it's hot, so an air conditioned shopping mall seems a good hide out and it is. A few good shops and restaurants. Layout is kind of odd, so you might bet lost. Just...More

Last time I was down at Wollongong was in April, great shopping experience for all, plenty of shops to suit all budgets, and a food court that has great food. And the beach just down the road, plenty of places to sit and mellow.
