The hill and lookout here offer fantastic views north along the beautiful Illawarra coastline and south to Port Kembla and the Five Islands. The lighthouse on the point is called Flagstaff Hill and is still an important aid to coastal shipping. It's a great place for kids - lots and lots of open spaces to roam over and it can get pretty windy here too - so that may even assist their energy levels.! It can also be a good place to spot whales though unfortunately on our last visit there was a dead one floating in the water, less than 200 m off the point.

It was ridiculously windy, which in a way made you appreciate even more how difficult life would have been on these coastal towns without all the luxuries we take for granted. It is now a beautiful area. Excellent parking facilities, clean and the best part...... the views!!!

There is a very good view up and down the coast from the lookout near the lighthouse, there is plenty of parking available and plenty of seats.

Love the Wollongong Lighthouse as the view is stunning. It is a great area to go and relax. We enjoy walking around the area surrounding the lighthouse if in Wollongong for the day. The Wollongong area has a lot to offer.

The lighthouse is one of the points you must go if you are visiting Wollongong. This lighthouse is also a good lookout point to advise the ocean and the north and south sides of Wollongong.

The boat harbour, lighthouse and surrounds with coastal walkway and cycle path are excellent. There are many stops with historical information and photos that make the walk interesting as well as views of a great coastline. The area is a real credit to those responsible.

If you visiting Wollongong Lighthouse a place not to miss it. It’s beautiful it’s mesmerising. Morning and evening are best times to visit. You can visit anytime but I like to visit at morning and evening.

This lighthouse is also known as Flagstaff Hill Lighthouse as that is where it is located.

This lighthouse assists shipping into into the industrial Port Kembla and is still active.

Construction of this lighthouse was completed in 1936.

It has sweeping views of the local beaches with Port Kembla in the background.

Great historic sight, nice view. Hold onto your hat, it’s pretty windy on the headland. Plenty of parking available.
