Wollongong - A great place to live and have a business!
The Illawarra is a dynamic and innovative region that boasts unmatched natural beauty, a skilled workforce, emerging growth industries and world class facilities. The Illawarra is the third largest economy in the state of New South Wales, worth in excess of $16 billion in goods and services, and comprises the major economic centres of Wollongong, Shellharbour, Kiama and Nowra.
The area’s natural beauty also provides boundless opportunities to run a successful business and to enjoy your new lifestyle. The region provides scope for relaxing and exploring, with terrific shopping and plenty of options for dining and accommodation. Above all else, Wollongong is a great place to enjoy the good life. Warm summers and mild winters mean that the area’s wide range of outdoor recreational activities can be enjoyed all year round. The majority of the area’s residents live only minutes from the beach and Lake Illawarra, which cater for an endless array of water sports such as surfing, fishing, water skiing, sailing, swimming and diving.

The small business sector is a critical component of the economy of the Illawarra region and the nation. There are currently almost 28,000 small businesses operating in the Illawarra region. Small Business accounts for more than 96% of the actively trading businesses in the Illawarra.
