Top tips for hiring a car in Wollongong

  • Hire a car in Wollongong to discover the Grand Pacific Drive and stop wherever you like along the winding coastline from Royal National Park to Shoalhaven. Buses can be caught to nearby towns from Wollongong but a hire car will give you the ability to make stops and take in views from certain places, such as Robertson's Knoll Lookout and Bald Hill Lookout. Attractions, such as Wollongong Botanic Garden and Fo Guang Shan Nan Tien Temple, are spread across the city and require a connection of two buses through West Wollongong, taking 45min rather than a quick 10min drive with a hire car. Mount Keira is also best reached by car to avoid the tiring 3 km ascent from the nearest bus stop.
  • The reception desks of Avis, Budget, Europcar, Enterprise, Hertz and Thrifty can be found to the left of Arrivals Hall A at Sydney International Airport (SYD). A 5min walk is required to reach the hire cars in the P7 Car Park and no shuttles are provided. Offices are also located directly opposite the Jetstar and Qantas baggage claim in Terminal 2 and 3, with a short walk to the vehicles outside. A hire car may help save time and money travelling from the airport to Wollongong as bus and train transfers cost approximately A$ 20–30 with a 2h trip, while driving takes roughly 1h 10min.
  • Take care when driving around coastal Wollongong roads as vehicles can approach quickly around blind corners. Watch for cars veering off direction as many drivers are tempted to take their eyes off the road along the Sea Cliff Bridge. Cyclists are common throughout the Illawarra region and a safe distance of at least 1.5 m must be given when overtaking.
  • Much calmer than other major cities across Australia, traffic in Wollongong peaks between 07:30–09:00. Congestion picks up during the afternoon around 15:30; however, long delays are not common. Traffic is worst along Princes Mwy, especially in the morning as commuters make their way to work in Sydney.

  • Book your car hire in Wollongong at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
