I really liked the Nan Tien Buddhist temple - the largest Buddhist temple in the Southern Hemisphere. Definitely worth a stop, even if you're only mildly interested.

How far do you consider to still be Wollongong? Kiama, though a separate town, has an awesome blowhole, which you can see by walking from the station up to the headland.

Better when there is a bit of wind. But heaps better than some lauded from overseas. the town itself has cute shops and a great atmosphere, and is only a short train ride from Wollongong proper.

If you have a car then head on a little further, to see the park near the town of Jambaroo. the name escapes me at the moment. also nearby is the adventure park called Jambaroo. Water slides, waterfall jump, go karts, grass skiing, and also a grass tube ride downhill, all perfect for the adventurous part of you. check opening times as it may only be on weekends, especially in the next little while until the weather warms up.

around Wollongong, the little town of Shell harbour is very popular with tourists.

even further south, and stretching the friendship to say it is wollongong, is the area called Jervis bay. whitest beaches , dolphin tours, and just beautiful unspoilt areas. Need a car I think, though there may be tours which go there. you would need tocheck it out.

Didnt read up the previous messages clearly. the park I am talking about near the town of Jamberoo, is Minnamurra Falls, so that is two reccommendations to see this place.
