There are not many better ways to end the day then to watch a sunset. Living close to the ocean, there is an abundance of options to take a load off and enjoy the assortment of colours as they reflect over the water. Here are some places worth venturing to and bask in the evening glow.
As the waves of the ocean crash against the rocks underneath the bridge, you’ll be treated to the image of the sun setting over the horizon. The 665-metre structure has plenty of room for everyone to stop for a rest and enjoy the view. You might even see a whale or two if you’re lucky.
For a tougher trek to a great spot to see the sunset, Sublime Point Lookout will test your leg strength but reward you with a dazzling display. After the difficult walking path, you’ll be treated with a 180-degree view of the rainforest, beaches, and stunning skyline of Wollongong.
Featuring a stunning view over the entire city of Wollongong, Mt Keira Lookout forms part of the Illawarra Escarpment and makes for a breathtaking view of the sun going down. The spot also contains a picnic spot, kiosk, and BBQ facilities if you’re in no rush to leave.
It’s perhaps the most iconic spot in Wollongong, and it’s for a good reason. Featuring a full view of the ocean, you’ll be treated to a sea of oranges, yellows, and reds that you’re unlikely to see anywhere else. With plenty of space to sit and put your feet up, it’s a peaceful spot that will help clear your mind.
