Location
Wollongong, Australia
Informally referred to as "The Gong", Wollongong is a coastal city in Australia, 50 miles south of Sydney along the Grand Pacific Drive. Surfing beaches and rock pools line the coastline. Trails encircle the forests and rocky cliffs of Mt. Keira in the Illawarra mountain range, which frames the city. To the north, hang gliders launch from Bald Hill. South lie the Buddhist temple of Nan Tien and Lake Illawarra, a large lagoon with boating and fishing facilities.Wollongong's population of 292,190 make it the third largest city in New South Wales after Sydney and Newcastle, and the ninth largest city in Australia.
 
The city is never more than roughly six kilometers at its widest but stretches over forty kilometers from South to North. Its growth was limited by mountains, which are not so much high as steep, and the sea to the Illawarra includes a whole chain of coastal towns, from Kiama and Shellharbour in the south to Bulli, Austinmer, and even up to Stanwell Park in the north. Wollongong also includes a large Mediterranean (Macedonian, Serbian, Bosnian, Croatian, Italian, Hungarian, Greek, Turkish, Portuguese, Spanish), Indian and Asian population which has left its mark on the city and means there is a great range of food and entertainment options.
