Windang

(2.5/5 based on 50+ reviews for 4 attractions)
Things to do: nightlife, golf, adventure
Windang is a suburb of Wollongong in New South Wales on the southern tip of the peninsula guarding the ocean entrance to Lake Illawarra. Windang is popular for its fishing, prawning, boating, windsurfing and yachting. Windang is about 103 km south of Sydney, approximately 20 minutes drive south of the Wollongong CBD and about seven minutes from Shellharbour city.Windang has a carnival which comes every year near Lake Illawarra.HistoryWindang is an aboriginal word meaning "scene of a fight". William Turnbull purchased land in the area in 1920 and erected a two story building called "Wyndang House".In 1926 the Post Office attached to this house was officially named Windang Post Office following a submission from Turnbull to have the name changed from the unofficial Lake Illawarra Post Office. The request was granted on the proviso that "the correct spelling be adopted namely Windang, which is that of the Island and Trigonometrical Station thereon in the vicinity".Tourism and recreational fishing have always been of major importance in the area. Guest houses sprung up in the 1930s to cater for the tourist trace, and the Windang Camping Reserves have never ceased to be popular.Windang is sometimes notorious for the number of drownings that occur in the area; most recently, a 19-year-old man drowned whilst rock-fishing in the area.
