Wollongong didn't strike me as a place with much going on and it's hot, so an air conditioned shopping mall seems a good hide out and it is. A few good shops and restaurants. Layout is kind of odd, so you might bet lost. Just...More

I am not a big shopper but I did really enjoy the shops at Wollongong Central. Lots of variety and some different shops to back home. Easy to get around, not crowded and convenient. Parking is tricky but the old car park near David Jones...More

Last time I was down at Wollongong was in April, great shopping experience for all, plenty of shops to suit all budgets, and a food court that has great food. And the beach just down the road, plenty of places to sit and mellow.

While there is nothing remarkable about this centre, it is quite pleasant to visit and enjoyable to just wander around. Good selection of specialty shops as well as the usual majors. The big standout for us was the selection of food outlets. Worth the effort...More

Parking is either (free) miles away or expensive (walking distance to the shops)Ordinary shops very boring location, hard to navigate, Target store is tiny with very limited stock. Personally I would rather drive to Shellharbour or MacArthur Square (Campbelltown)
