Wollongong, the third largest city of NSW, as an events or conference destination presents you with endless opportunities. Our magnificent coastline provides the very best environments with fabulous coastal routes dotted with crystal clear coves and clean white sands that stretch for many kilometres.
The spectacular unspoilt rainforests that cover the escarpment of the Illawarra meandering to a beachside location, offer conference delegates an unsurpassed destination to do business in. As a city in a coastal setting, delegates can successfully conference during the day then make the most of the many natural attractions after the conference concludes for the day.
Wollongong Conference & Events provides an enormous variety of options for convention, exhibition and meeting planners, rarely found in one location. Convenient freeways connect the region to Sydney and Canberra. Just over one hour from Sydney CBD to the heart of Wollongong and two hours from Canberra the ease of access to Wollongong is one of a myriad of reasons to hold your next conference in the region.
Our conference and catering facilities cater for a wide range of budgets from International standards to modest venues. Two of the region's largest conference venues, the WIN Sports and Entertainment Centres and Novotel Wollongong Northbeach are located right on the beachfront and both are within easy walking distance to a large range of accommodation, shopping and activity options.
Wollongong has sophistication of a large city yet the charm and welcome of a big country town. When you combine this attribute with a destination that boasts some of the world's most beautiful beaches, a cosmopolitan city and World Heritage National Parks, you have the foundation for a successful event.
Our unique position allows delegates and accompanying persons an abundance of activities and excursions. Why not spend a day at one of our magnificent beaches, tour a vineyard, explore the many art galleries, walk through our National Park, take a quick trip on a Harley Davidson, abseil, skydive on to the beach, or simply sit at one of our beachside restaurants and catch a glimpse of a passing whale or dolphin?
Wollongong has a renowned reputation for adventure and nature, you will be spoiled by choice!
If you then mix in many years of experience in hosting meetings, the diverse range of accommodation and entertainment options, easy access, modern transport links, and a vast array of meeting support services, all in a relaxed seaside setting, Wollongong is the ideal conference destination.
Wollongong Conference and Events is a dedicated organisation that promotes Wollongong as a conference, meeting, exhibition and sporting destination. We can offer a conference planner the following complimentary support that will help you get the best out of our coastal destination.
