Surf, sand and sea are a winning combination for an adventure-filled weekend, which is why Wollongong sits high on our list of bucks party destinations. Just over an hour’s drive south of Sydney, the ‘Gong’ offers up a tasting plate of natural attractions, picturesque drives, high-adrenaline activities and a vibrant mix of pubs and small bars to wet your whistle. This is a city that loves its sport too. You can catch the Dragons at WIN Stadium, watch the Illawarra Hawks play a home game, or see the Western Sydney Wanderers in action against the visiting A-League team.
They say the best things in life are free, and we must admit the free Wollongong shuttle bus is pretty dang good. It loops around the CBD every ten minutes during the day, and every 20 minutes between 6pm and 10pm. Keep in mind the service cuts off at 6pm on weekends, so unless you’re planning a VERY early night, we suggest you look into the other local bus services, train timetables and local cab services. For tripping around during the day, nothing beats your own wheels, so car hire or a minibus should be high on the agenda. If you’d like something a little more VIP, ask our friendly Bucks Co party planners about a private driver or limo service.
