On the southern tip of the peninsula guarding the ocean entrance to Lake Illawarra, Windang is blessed with fine surf beaches and easy access to both off-shore and estuarine fishing grounds.
The natural wonderland surrounding the pristine waters of the lake is a mecca for surfing, fishing, prawning, boating, windsurfing and yachting.
Windang is about 103km south of Sydney, approximately 20 minutes’ drive south of the Wollongong CBD and about seven minutes from Shellharbour city.
Both Wollongong and Shellharbour offer many of the usual attractions and facilities, including good shopping, entertainment facilities and a selection of excellent restaurants, cafes and clubs.
Other nearby attractions unique to the area include The Science Centre and Planetarium, The Nan Tien Temple - the largest Buddhist temple in the Southern Hemisphere - and the scenic mountain railway up the Illawarra Escarpment.
Windang is within easy driving distance of a wide range of marine and south coast hinterland forest reserves and recreational parkland. The Jamberoo Valley and Minnamurra Rainforest Centre is only 25km to the south-west and it’s a simple matter to find your way to Macquarie Pass which winds its way up the spectacular Illawarra Escarpment into the Southern Highlands region.
