Wollongong Showground

Wollongong Showground is a multi-purpose stadium located down in Wollongong; also known as WIN Stadium and has a history that goes as far back as 1911.

It is interesting to note that the stadium was first used for hosting agricultural shows and at one point, even had a greyhound track.

The hosting of its first rugby league game marked its official opening. Seventy years later, the Illawarra Steelers team played their home games at Wollongong Showground, eventually marking the team’s home ground. Currently, it is also used as the home grounds of the St. George Illawarra Dragons NRL team and Wollongong Wolves for the National Premier League.

To effectively host these matches, the stadium has been renovated several times over the years with various upgrades to increase both the capacity and functionality. With a capacity of 23,000 people, it is easy to see why this is one of the most popular destinations for sports lovers.

WIN Stadium has three key grandstands located at the following sides: Northern, Southern and Western sides. On the Eastern side, right opposite the Western grandstand, there is a grassy hill that provides patrons with great views of the surrounding region. If you look closely, you might notice that the Northern Grandstand was constructed using materials from the iconic Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre in 2002.

For anyone interested in catching up with all the sporting action in Wollongong, WIN Stadium is the place to be. Look out for the different Rugby League Soccer matches played throughout the year.

Wollongong Showground is also quite accessible as it’s located right next to the WIN Entertainment Centre – in front of the northern grandstand. Additionally, the Wollongong train station is about a 20-minute walk from the stadium. On select game days, a shuttle bus runs between the stadium and the train station.

Street parking is available close to the stadium, but these can get full quickly. For this reason, try using the parking complexes nearby.
