Tumbling Waters

Boutique hotel in Wollongong

Between Sydney and Wollongong, about 30km north of the latter, this is perched right on the edge of the escarpment and boasts absolutely breathtaking views. It's a luxurious, friendly, boutique retreat aimed at couples on a romantic break. Rooms in the main building are the loveliest but are significantly pricier. There's a restaurant with stunning perspectives. Often books out for weddings at weekends.
