Arts & Culture

Print this Page

Wollongong has a colourful and vibrant cultural life, complemented by a rich blend of heritages from countries around the world and our own Indigenous communities.

We believe culture is a vital part of Wollongong’s future and we're working to bring business, industry and local artists together to create a unique community environment.

We support the development of art, heritage and cultural activity through our Creative Wollongong 2019 - 2024 [10.2 MB] strategy.
