Fetch your bags exit the arrivals hall at Shellharbour, NSW Airport (WOL), and pick up your rental car. Which one you grab the keys to depends on what your travel itinerary looks like. If you’ll be mostly driving in downtown Wollongong, around 11 miles from the terminal, choose something small. A compact car that’s easy to handle will suit those busy city streets. But with so many things to see, like the stunning bays of the region, you may want to add some pit stops. A bigger vehicle, like a full-size car or an SUV, will make lengthier road trips a pleasure.
