Things to do in Wollongong with kids

Woollongong is a fun place with a fun name! This sunny waterfront city is so family friendly, and hugely popular to visit with kids. Want to know why? Of course!

First of all, there are great attractions where kids can have fun AND learn (always popular with the parents!). Places like the Illawarra Museum which take you back through the history of the area, or the Science Centre and Planetarium with its interactive exhibit hall and space-tastic fun and great ways for kids to learn without realising it!

Got active kids in the family? Then they will certainly be in their element! Why not enjoy some rock climbing with Hangdog Climbing Gym, or bounce the day away at Hangtime Trampoline Park!

Want something for the really brave? How about the zooming zipline at Illawarra Fly!? Now the whole family can fly!

There are animals at Symbio Wildlife Park, nature at Wollongong Botanic Gardens, and LOTS of kids fun in…Wollongong!  Enjoy!
