University of Wollongong

Location Information:

Along with planned excursions, Wollongong proves to be an excellent location for students to take weekend trips to explore even more areas of Australia. Students in the past have gone to the Outback, taken in a rugby game at the Olympic Stadium in Sydney or toured the Blue Mountains. Other easy and manageable trips include heading south to experience the excitement of Melbourne, west to enjoy Perth, or staying in Wollongong to surf, skydive, bike, hike, explore the city, or enjoy some their exquisite restaurants and clubs.
