Wollongong Harbour

Wollongong Harbour is a great spot to relax and take in amazing coastal views. There are also plenty of paths, pools and parks around the harbour if you prefer to be active.

The harbour is managed by the NSW Department of Primary Industry (DPI). They’ve prepared a draft master plan to guide the future care and improvement of the harbour. The draft plan has been endorsed by Council, and will come into effect when it is endorsed by the Minister for Water, Property and Housing.

Council looks after many of the paths, parks and playgrounds around the harbour. We work closely with the DPI to keep the area in good shape and protect its heritage.

Brighton Beach

The small sandy beach at Wollongong Harbour is known as Brighton Beach. Although the waters may seem calm most of the time, this is an unpatrolled beach and is not a suitable location for swimming. It can also have water quality issues, particularly after rain.

Visit our beaches page to find a patrolled beach nearby.
