Wollongong's registered clubs offer members and visitors quality hospitality at affordable prices. Just about every suburb scattered along the coastal plain and around Lake Illawarra offers the facilities of at least one club. The area has a large choice of social and sporting clubs, and come in all shapes and sizes from local Bowling clubs, Golf, Workers, RSL and Ex- Services clubs. We can even boast having the second oldest Leagues Club in the world.
Our local clubs have earned a reputation for providing quality food, catering particularly for families. Many of our clubs have a choice of restaurants and cafes, offering a variety of food from take away, buffet and A la Carte. Our clubs also reflect our cultural diversity in offering specific cuisines and entertainment, such as German and Greek to name only two.
The natural setting of the area lends itself to a number of sporting clubs. The Illawarra Yacht Club situated on Lake Illawarra is a good example and is a popular meeting place for those interested in water sports. The club is on the shores of the lake and provides a panoramic view of the numerous activities. Then if Rugby League is your game supporters do it in style with a number of large Leagues Clubs in the area. Those who enjoy a game of golf are also well catered for when it comes to clubs. Many of the golf clubs provide registered premises where members and visitors can enjoy a refreshing drink at the 19th hole.
Wollongong's registered clubs provide a relaxing atmosphere for members and visitors to meet and enjoy a drink in comfortable surroundings. If you've never been to a meat raffle you'll find that this version of the ever-popular chook raffle is run in most local clubs at least once a week. Almost every club supports smaller internal clubs catering for popular pastimes such as, darts, card games, golf and fishing. Many of our clubs are centres for entertainment offering regular shows and concerts featuring Australian and international talent, often free of charge.
Our registered clubs can also provide venues and complete services for meetings and conferences. Accommodation can be either on site or nearby at the large range available throughout the area.
