Above Wollongong at Pleasant Heights
Extra pleasant B&B above Wollongong
There’s a real touch of the exotic at this far-from-suburban B&B on the edge of Wollongong – an hour from Sydney – that takes its name from nearby Mount Pleasant. And “pleasant” is very much an understatement.

Good to know
There's not much to do in Wollongong itself – but it's a great base for day trips.
Two spa suites and one chic studio.
Each suite has a balcony, terrace or courtyard. The riotous Santa Fe suite has a carnival vibe while the Pleasant suite has a courtyard with water and koi carp.
Bed down in full-on Santa Fe – very, very pleasant!

A continental breakfast hamper is provided.
For breakfast only.
See & Do
There’s something for everyone in this fun packed location. The Taupo Surf School will talk you through your first surfing steps on 30 km of shoreline. Go trekking in the Minnamurra rainforest, work out at the Wollongong University Recreation and Aquatic Centre, go horse riding, cycling or hand gliding. For an extra kick, try skydiving over the beach or cruise the surrounds on a chauffeured Harley Davidson motorbike, solo sidecar or trike. For a lazier day, there are art galleries, dolphin cruises and even a Buddhist temple to be explored.
Kick off your shoes and book an in-room pamper treatment or aromatherapy massage.
For some groovy tunes check out Wollongong’s Easterfest, with a jazz festival, music awards and talent quest.
Adrenaline junkies shouldn’t miss the NSW Bull Riding at Yass – see the cowboys competing in the toughest sport on dirt.
