About us

We are working to meet the needs of our community and create a safe and sustainable place that provides opportunities for all.

Our elected Council involves seven Councillors and we have more than 320 staff who work to fulfill the tasks involved in the management of the city.

We are home to almost 68,000 people  in a city that spans 154 square kilometres. It's a place of great natural beauty - stretching west from the picturesque coastline to rolling pastures, against the majestic backdrop of the Illawarra escarpment.
