Bulli to Wollongong


A wonderful two lane 16km shared path ride from Thirroul & Bulli to the North Wollongong surf club and almost to the famous Lighthouse.


Here is the map of the trail >>

If you are coming by train or car, easier to park up near Bulli or Thirroul or better still enjoy the train ride to those places.


There are no tricks to this trail, its good for narrow wheels, there are hardly any road crossings, its dead flat and there are places to have a coffee. Bring your kids, ride there and back for 30km of activity. I have heard that it can be busy on good weather weekends but if you ready easy, it will be fine because the weather will be good.


On the way you will pass Woona, Towradgi and Bellambi rock pools plus the following Surf Life Saving Clubs; Bulli, Woonona, Corrimal, Towradgi, Fairy Meadow and North Wollongong. So take your swimmers and towel on a hot day.

Notes: If you are a good rider, you can just ride past the lighthouse and head all the way down to Port Kembla on a pretty reasonable bike path.


Stations: There are lifts at Nth Woolongong and Thirroul and a bridge near Bulli to cross over. If you want to go one way, getting to the train station at North Wollongong requires some slow footpath skills.
