Top Hire Car Tips in Wollongong

Just an hour south of Sydney, Wollongong is a popular holiday spot in New South Wales, and boasts stunning beaches, prime shopping, and plenty of recreational areas. Here are some of our top tips when driving in Wollongong:

  1. Ensure that you always observe the posted speed limit signs on the road. The speed limit at the intersection of Crown Street from Gladstone Avenue to Mangerton Road is now 50km/h in accordance with NSW speed zoning guidelines.
  2. Avoid driving during morning and afternoon peak hour times, typically from 7am to 9am, and 3pm to 5pm, as most roads can become heavily congested right around the city centre.
  3. Most on-street parking spaces in Wollongong’s centre consist of time limits during the day, and parking fees may apply. Always check signs for details.
  4. Parking in Council’s off-street metered car parks in Wollongong CBD is free and untimed before 8:30am and after 4:30pm on weekdays and free during weekends and public holidays.
