Travelling to Wollongong from the Airport

You can buy a journey ticket at one of the automated machines or kiosks. Follow this link for journey times, as well as arrivals and departure times.

Taxis don’t operate between the airport and Wollongong, although you can hire a private shuttle service. UoW recommends Leisure Coast Limousines.
