Wollongong Event Planners Guide

Dining

Wollongong’s reputation as an emerging foodie destination has grown in recent years and continues to do so. One thing that will not change is our famous seafood, for which Wollongong is renowned. 


Outside of meal times, you can grab a freshly brewed coffee, a waterfront artisan beer or tour a gorgeous winery or farm in the hinterland. You will find great options for group dining, as well as boutique venues that continue to pop up in our laneways and quieter streets.


The harbour is the centre of fine dining but if it is something more eclectic you are after, look no further than our diverse range of restaurants, bars and bistros available to delegates in the City Centre and elsewhere.


Perhaps a group dinner at an award winning restaurant or a cocktail at a small bar is more your style? Wollongong has it all.
