Just south of Sydney, easily accessed by train from Central Station and the Airport, are the beautiful Wollongong beaches and stunning beachfront cycle paths perfect for your first Sydney cycle tour.
Hop off the train at Thirroul Station and follow farOut App straight to the beaches. We lucked in on a beautiful sunny day and were very excited to see a pod of whales cruise past almost as soon as our cycle began.
The ride to Kiama took us along the surf beaches, alongside Lake Illawarra with plenty of time to enjoy the famous rock swimming pools. At Kiama, after you marvel at the blowhole, it is easy to access the train for your return journey.
Or you can take an extra day to enjoy the Kiama Coastal Walk.
This ride is best during the whale migration season – north bound May to July or south bound with their calves September to November. We suggest that this 80km ride is enjoyed over 2 days leaving you time to see, taste and experience everything along the way.
