The Illawarra is an idyllic location with the city of Wollongong being a favourite relocation destination in Australia, mainly due to both its close proximity to Sydney and its more affordable cost of living. Situated on the south coast of New South Wales, the city is a modern urban centre with a close connection to its rural surroundings and coastal lifestyle. With moderate temperatures all year round and plenty of activities in and around the area, ‘the Gong’ is one of the fastest growing cities in the state and an ideal location to live in.
With an abundance of public and private schools in the wider Wollongong region, there are plenty of girls, boys and co-educational, non-denominational and religious schooling options available for your children in the region. Wollongong is also home to the world famous research-oriented University of Wollongong, so if higher education and continued education options are on your list of priorities, then this is the perfect city for making your new home.
There are no toll roads in the Illawarra region, with the Princess Motorway (M1) being the main road connecting Wollongong to its neighbouring cities of Sydney, Nowra and Shellharbour. Public transport in the area is operated by Premier Illawarra and the NSW Transport with busses covering the city and surrounding suburbs of Wollongong, and train services connecting the city to other city centres. There is also a free shuttle bus service that operates in the city centre, connecting the major sites of the city.
Wollongong Hospital and the Figtree Private Hospital are the two major hospitals in the city and provide a variety of healthcare, medical and palliative care services to the region’s residents. There are also a number additional smaller hospitals, health clinics and day surgeries around the Illawarra district, making healthcare services easily accessible when required.
