Day 1 – Sydney to Wollongong
Start by exploring the Royal National Park, the second oldest National Park in the world. Discover rainforests, creeks, secluded beaches and dramatic sandstone headlands. Head on to Symbio Wildlife Park, to pat, cuddle or feed a host of furry, finned and feathered friends.
Stop at Bald Hill Lookout for an awe-inspiring panorama from Stanwell Tops down the spectacular coastline then continue south and drive the majestic Sea Cliff Bridge, an engineering marvel that swerves out from the cliffs over the ocean.
Visit the popular Austinmer Beach and the historic ocean baths, and sample some local gelato. Overnight in Wollongong, a laidback university town that has plenty of pubs, clubs, restaurants and cafes to choose from – all enhanced by fresh sea air.

- Enjoy the views from Stanwell Tops with a tandem hang-glide adventure.
- Swim in the ocean pool at Austinmer Beach.
