if you come to Wollongong and just need some quite time and some peace and quiet, you need to visit the botanical gardens. Great for a leisurely stroll around the beautiful gardens, or just resting under a shady tree. Really nice place to visit

If you're in Wollongong you must visit the Botanical Gardens! They're wheelchair friendly and very easy to walk around. Great place to go relax with a book or take time out from our busy lives.
