Wollongong and the surrounding regions are filled with many great places to do some shopping. When buying goods in Australia all prices displayed are inclusive of tax (unless clearly marked otherwise). Most shopping experiences are undertaken in shopping centres that provide a holistic experience combing shopping, food, comfort and entertainment. The following centre is a TALE2018 sponsor.

Stockland Shellharbour

Stockland Shellharbour is one of the largest shopping centres in the Illawarra area and a quick 20min drive from Wollongong. A regular bus service also links the two areas directly. Alterntaively, you can catch a train to Oak Flats and continue the journey by bus.

Stockland Shellharbour is home to five major stores including Myer, Target, Kmart, Woolworths and Coles, plus over 250 specialty stores. You’ll find the best fashion and homeware brands under the one roof.


The Avenue is our newest dining area where quick catch ups become long lunches. Featuring ten delicious eateries including Lone Start Rib House, Grill’d, Chong Co, The Coffee Club, Sushi Bay, Guzman Y Gomez, Cold Rock Ice cream, Zeus and Tella Balls.
