Wollongong CBD has come alive in the last few years with lots of small bars, cafes and restaurants. They are all within a 10-15 minute walking radius. Other options... Kneading Ruby (5 Crown Lane) Pizza plus shared plates + bar (our favourite). Humber (226 Crown St) Great rooftop bar, coffee, light meals. Dagwood (19 Market St) Small Bar. The Throsby (88 Kembla St). Small Bar, cheeses, light meals. Lorenzos (119 Keira St). Good Italian food, a bit noisy, separate cocktail bar. Caveaux (122 Keira St). Hatted restaurant. French-inspired. The Little Prince is one of a number of bars/cafes in Globe Lane and well worth a look. 3 Chimneys (rear 65 Crown St) old warehouse now hip bar.

Great Cafe, reasonable coffee but a bit patchy. Often very busy but popular with locals and has a great vibe. Lots of interesting gourmet food options and knick-knacks to purchase.

Best coffee in area (at time of writing) but tiny and often crowded. Has recently added a larger outside area which is good for fine days.

Opened in 2016 and is a modern pub and bistro in a great coastal location. Has a bit of a "Sports Bar" feel about it but we have friends who love it and others who are a bit negative. Worth a try for drinks and bistro food but go elsewhere for coffee.

This is a nice walk up into the escarpment and suitable for mid-fitness level. Great way to spend a couple of hours. We usually park at the Coalcliff end and then walk back along the road after finishing the trail at Stanwell Park. If you get organised it can be convenient to take the local train to from Wombarra to Coalcliff and then return on the train from Stanwell Park at the end of the walk.
