Wollongong has a lot to offer teens; that is why we have made a list of the top ten activities to do in ‘Gong for absolute fun!
1. Bald Hill Lookout
Grab an ice cream and check out the impressive view of Sea Cliff Bridge and the coastline stretching south beyond it. There are usually a few hang gliders soaring above as well.
2. Otford Farm Trail Rides
Take a one-hour or two-hour trail ride through this very pretty valley. The rainforest trail winds through the trees and across a few creeks. It’s simply beautiful on horseback.
3. Revolution Laser Arena
This is next-generation laser gaming with a movie set quality arena, detailed backstory and the latest in technology.
4. Symbio Wildlife Park
The koalas at this zoo have taken social media by storm with their cute antics. Be sure to grab a koala selfie and check out the other critters here, including tigers, cheetahs and – King Julian himself and his lemur subjects.
5. Kiama Blowhole
Check out the ocean spray at the Blowhole, which can sometimes reach up to 25 metres high.
6. Hangdog Climbing Gym
This huge indoor climbing centre has more than 140 different climbs on 40 ropes – some self-belaying. When you’ve had enough of climbing you can go caving in a series of tunnels behind the walls.
7. Nan Tien Temple
The largest Buddhist temple in the Southern Hemisphere has beautiful gardens to explore. Great for teens who love taking selfies. But you can also take some time to learn about Buddhist culture and how it has shaped people’s lives.
8. Illawarra Fly Treetop Adventures
This elevated steel canopy walk has amazing views over Lake Illawarra and now you can also fly through the tree tops on a series of ziplines.
9. Jamberoo Action Park
You’ll find loads of wet and dry thrills at Jamberoo. See how fast you can come down the mountain on the toboggan or scare yourself silly on the Funnelweb waterslide.
10. Beach volleyball
Join in a game of volleyball at Northbeach and cool off afterwards with a swim in the surf.
