All of our parks are situated on the Grand Pacific Drive, which encompasses some of the most spectacular coastline in New South Wales.  It makes getting here as wonderful as being here.

The Destination Wollongong and Shellharbour Tourism websites are a great source of information for planning your visit. They provide information on local attractions, entertainment, activities, dining, shopping and festivals and events.
