Flagstaff Hill is one of Wollongong's best spots. City Beach on one side, the harbour on the other and a lighthouse right at the top. My favourite thing to do here is get an ice cream from Normie's and just sit and look out over the water. There's normally a few tankers to watch and you might catch a cruise ship or whale on a good day. Normie's itself is an ice cream van, strategically parked there everyday providing the best in soft serve enjoyment. Yes, you can get it dipped in chocolate or nuts or sherbet or have it with traditional monster or clown configurations. Truly a childhood memory! Other vans are scattered throughout the area for events – follow their facebook page for more info.
