Worth doing the drive

Drove from Newcastle (on our way to Canberra) specifically to see the Bridge, what a lovely drive would love to live closer so I could do it more often.

Fabulous and scenic
Feb. 2021 • Friends
We live in Wollongong and drove parts of it with an international visitor. Going south to Port Kembla to Hill 60 then through Albion Park to Bowral. Next day to Stanwell Top to see the hang gliders and then stopping to walk Seacliff Bridge and passing all the villages back to Wollongong. Scenic and coastal.

It’s amazing and fabulous drive

Hi I’ll strongly recommend the Grand Pacific drive. Sydney to Wollongong. It’s amazing if you have time go through National park and start from bald lookout to all the Wollongong. On the Dont forget to stop at cliff bridge, parks and the beaches along the coast.

Great coastal views and awesome sea cliff bridge
Dec. 2020
Great drive from Thirroul to Stanwell Park. Recommended when driving between South Coast beaches. A lot of lookouts but the best spot is sea cliff bridge. I recommend stopping nearby and going for a walk. Great views and photo opportunities.

I felt like it was living a car advertisement. Just gorgeous and worth the drive. I can’t believe I have lived in Sydney for so long and hadn’t seen this amazing piece of coastline.

Zoom zoom lovely drive
If you can’t arrive by hover craft I thoroughly recommend driving on bitumen. It’s blacktop is often underrated as hard or overly coarse, however this particular stretch of road had a rather palatial, dare I say it unearthly vibe.

Bright Sunny Day View Down The Coast
Aug. 2020
Came down from Helensburgh and joined the drive at Stanwell Tops. A fantastic view of the Sea Cliff Bridge and the southern coastline to Port Kembla. The drive through all the great little towns/villages is just awesome. Its such a great stretch of road.

Day trip to Grand Pacific Drive from Sydney
Jul. 2020 • Solo
A lovely day trip from Sydney. A lot to see along the way, could easily have made into 2 or even 3 days. Favorite was enjoying some oysters while watching sunset at Wollongong Foreshore Park
