When In Wollongong


Sydney’s Bathers’ Pavilion- in Balmoral- is an iconic location. But just south of the
city, in Wollongong, there’s another bathers’ pavilion where the views and food are
just as noteworthy! Northbeach Pavilion is housed in the heritage-listed North Beach
Bathers’s pavilion, built in the 1930’s. Today, Northbeach Pavilion offers fresh, simple
and flavoursome cuisine, with an emphasis on Italian flavours. Think fresh seafood,
sourced largely from the Illawarra, and fresh pasta offering an ode to the heritage of
the Italian owners, Lorraine and Max. There’s also an in-house wood-fired pizza
oven, imported from Italy, so you’re guaranteed fresh and authentic Neapolitan- style
pizzas. And the ocean views are so close to your table, you can see, smell and
inhale the scent of the sea, while dining. The wine list also features a carefully
selected list of varietals from both Australian, New Zealand and Italy.

Just south of North Beach is Harbourfront Seafood Restaurant. One of the leading
seafood restaurants in the entire Illawarra, Harbourftont has been serving the
community for several decades. Enjoy uninterrupted harbour views, and a
seafood-laden menu. One of the stand-out dishes is their cold and raw seafood
platter featuring Sydney Rock oysters, Balmain bugs, king prawns, blue swimmer
crabs, ceviche, sashimi and more! There’s also live, local lobsters, in a variety of
sizes. Choose from a curated wine and cocktail list, and make sure you leave room
for dessert with some fun plays on Australian classics like the Fairy Bread Cube!
This is the perfect location for a long brunch or lunch!
