Introducing an ongoing Snapshots from Wollongong series
My home town of Wollongong is a fabulously, diverse place. Although a small city by world standards, it is the third-largest in NSW and the 10th largest in Australia. I wrote my first snapshot post back in December 2017. Since then, I have written a few more posts about things to see and do here.
Click on these links to read my posts about
- Wollongong Botanic Gardens
- Reviews of small bars. Two posts so far and potentially another one to come depending on how my group of intrepid researchers classify how “small” is small?
- Street Art
- Our two lighthouses
- And free outdoor activities
An A-Z of Wollongong
Over the next few months, I am going to concentrate on a series of “Snapshots from Wollongong”. I have mapped out an A-Z of suburbs and will show you around. It’s not going to be all glitz and glamour but hopefully a truthful overview of the place I intend to call home till I fall off the perch.
The series is more likely to appeal to ‘Gong locals although if you are thinking of travelling to Australia, Wollongong is an excellent place to get away from the hustle and bustle of Sydney. Some days you can get the whole beach to yourself!
True to my scattered form, I will not be approaching it in strict alphabetical order but just as the fancy takes me and when I can get to where to do the research. At this stage, I have nothing for Z! We don’t have a zoo.
The series starts proper, this Friday, with P for Port Kembla! It won’t be every week and given I have identified 62 named suburbs in Wollongong’s Local Government Area, it’s going to take me a while! I’ll be throwing in other posts about other things too to keep the blog moving along.
BTW: I have some wooden postcards featuring Wollongong in my shop.
If you have an idea for Z, let me know in the comments below. In fact there is no I, Q V or X either!
