It is my great pleasure to welcome you to Destination Wollongong’s Event Planners’ Guide - the must-have reference for anyone planning an event in the Wollongong region.

This innovative and interactive guide showcases the fantastic breadth of venues, accommodation and dining options Wollongong has to offer, as well as a vast array of activities and trusted services that will help create a truly memorable experience.

Wollongong is perfectly positioned, only an hour from Sydney and the domestic and international airport, but a world away in terms of event logistics and bang for your buck.

We have amazing local food, professional suppliers and brilliant delegate activities, complemented by a slew of breathtaking oceanfront venues. Whether you are planning a fun run or an intimate cocktail function, Wollongong can provide the framework, landscape and style you want to project.

Business events and conferences are worth upwards of $10 million to our local economy and this growing market is one that we are keen to expand. This guide highlights all the options available and will help you formulate an exciting itinerary to capitalise on our thriving regional city and beautiful hinterland. If you choose to go even further afield, the unspoilt South Coast beckons, with stunning beaches, a refreshing lifestyle and world class attractions. 

The dedicated team at Destination Wollongong can help you build the perfect suite of events and activities to suit your needs.

It’s all here-enjoy, and we look forward to welcoming you to Wollongong soon.
