Albion Park

Suburb Profile

Overview

A mingling of country and coastal living, Albion Park is a lively town on Sydney’s South Coast just a few kilometres north of Kiama and next door to sparkling Lake Illawarra.

With the picturesque Southern Highlands less than an hour away and the blue waters of Shellharbour just 10 kilometres east, Albion Park offers the best of both bush and beach living. Situated 105 kilometres south of the Sydney CBD between Wollongong and Kiama, Albion Park has been attracting crowds since the late 1800s with its heritage charms, stunning natural surrounds, quaint museums, and welcoming ambience.

Albion Park is surrounded by a ‘green belt’ of rural farms and lush acreages, ensuring that stunning natural outlooks are available at every turn. Adding to this aura of verdure is Albion Park’s proximity to Macquarie Pass National Park. Just 10 minutes away from Albion Park, Macquarie Pass National Park is home to towering eucalypts, sandstone valleys, and abundant local wildlife, making it the perfect outing for outdoor enthusiasts.

Back in town, Albion Park’s many museums are open to the public and are a visual treasure for visitors and locals alike. The Illawarra Light Railway Museum takes visitors back in time with steam and miniature train rides on the second Sunday of every month, while the Tongarra Museum documents the exciting history of the Illawarra. Aviation enthusiasts should not miss an opportunity to stop in at Illawarra Regional Airport and take an adrenalin-pumping aerobatic flight over Shellharbour with Southern Biplane Adventures.
