Stanwell Park is a picturesque coastal village and northern suburb of Wollongong in Australia. It takes about an hour to drive get to Stanwell Park from Sydney. It is situated in a small valley between Bald Hill to the north, Stanwell Tops to the west and Mount Mitchell to the south. The spectacular view of the South Coast from Bald Hill Lookout is just amazing. On a nice windy day, you will see many para gliders and hang gliders taking off from the lookout. And if you feel adventurous yourself, there are many tandem hang gliding operators waiting for you to have the time of your life taking off from the look out and landing at Stanwell Park Beach. The lookout is a popular spot for a stop-over to have a pit stop, coffee or ice cream whilst enjoying the view of the Ocean and South Coastline.
The Stanwell Park Beach can get crowded during warmer months as it is a fantastic spot for family picnics with its beautiful beach, huge picnic area and playground and a reasonably good kiosk for takeaway food and drinks.
TIP: Stay away from the hang gliding landing runway.
