West Wollongong, New South Wales

West Wollongong, New South Wales

West Wollongong is the innermost western suburb of the coastal city of Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia. It is mainly residential, with public and private schools and a small commercial strip with a music store, chicken shop, electric goods store and carpet store along the Princes Highway with several petrol stations, two restaurants, a liquor store, a chemist and a flower shop. It is the location of the Mount Keira Road turnoff from the Princes Highway, incidentally the westernmost end of Crown Street.

Most residences are single storey or two-three storey units. One notable exception is the circular aged housing facility, a prominent sight, the highest building west of Wollongong in the plain, Diment Towers. It is, contrary to its name, a single tower with a base rather than multiple units. Diment Towers is just southwest of Wollongong Hospital.
