There is also a bike and running track which runs along the beaches in wollongong, for those that want to keep fit.
We have a large Balinese inspired backyard, where you can chill out and socialise with others at the BBQ area, lay in the sun on a balinese daybed, or relax and read a book on the grassed lawn. There is a fire pit in the courtyard to keep you warm on the cooler nights and to inspire much conversation with fellow travellers and infuse a bohemian atmosphere.
