Travelling to Wollongong

The closest international airport is the Sydney Kingsford Smith International Airport.


Wollongong is just 85 minutes by train from Sydney Airport and is located on the South Coast Line

North Wollongong Station is the closest station to the University. Wollongong Station is the closest to the Sage Hotel.

Take the train from the International or Domestic terminal to Wolli Creek, and change to a Wollongong train, bound for Port Kembla, Dapto or Bomaderry.

Wollongong trains leave Wolli Creek approximately every hour, however it can sometimes be quicker to catch a train from Wolli Creek to Hurstville to connect.
