Organise an Event

Applications for events will be unavailable from Friday 13 May until Monday 23 May, while we upgrade our systems.

Thank you for your patience while we improve our systems.


Events are made easy in Wollongong with a great selection of pre-approved event sites.

You don't have to apply for a DA (Development Application) if you're using one of our pre-approved sites. That means you're one step ahead in the planning process.

All you need to do is choose your site, talk to our Events team, and make an online Event Application. It’s that easy!

The information below covers everything you need to know about choosing the right site for your event, and Wollongong City Council’s streamlined process.

Pre-approved event sites

Each site comes with its own parameters, including the types of events that can be hosted and the area the site covers.

We encourage you to speak with Council’s Events team before making the final decision on your site. Please also check site details carefully when making your selection.

Pick a site below to learn more, or check out our overview of pre-approved event sites.

Events at other sites

Wollongong has lots of great locations for events. If you want to use a site that doesn't have pre-approval, you may need to go through some extra planning steps. Please get in touch with Council's Events team if you have another site in mind.
