Train from Sydney

Wollongong is just 85 minutes by train from Sydney Airport or Sydney’s Central Station.

From the International or Domestic terminals at Sydney Airport, take the train to Wolli Creek and change to a Wollongong train bound for Port Kembla, Dapto or Bomaderry (South Coast line).

It’s even easier from Central – just catch any Wollongong train on the South Coast line.

North Wollongong Station is the closest station to the University of Wollongong. There is a free shuttle bus between the station and the main university campus which meets all trains.

Wollongong Station is located in the CBD and is the closest station for most accommodation options.
