Stanwell Tops is a residential suburb in the north of Wollongong, named for being situated atop the start of the Illawarra Escarpment, above Stanwell Park.
Stanwell Tops is known for its beautiful coastal and cliff views. The hills that rise sharply from the coast to the escarpment with strong air currents make Stanwell Tops a prime spot for hang gliding and paragliding.
Local adventure tour operators can take you on the ride of a lifetime on a tandem flight. Alternatively, sit back and enjoy the panoramic views from Bald Hill Lookout.
Major features of Stanwell Tops are Lawrence Hargrave Memorial, Kelly’s Falls, Wodi Wodi Track, Henry Halloran Park, The Garden of Peace and Tops Christian Conference Centre.
