Unanderra (pronounced "yoo-nan-derra"; IPAEng|ˈjuː.næn.ˌdɛrə) is a suburb of Wollongong in New South Wales, Australia. It is located approximately 10km south-west of the Wollongong CBD. It is bordered to the west by Farmborough, Cordeaux Heights and Farmborough Heights in the Mount Kembla foothills, the north by Figtree, the east by Berkeley and Flagstaff Hill, site of the Nan Tien Temple, and the south by Kembla Grange.

Unanderra is both a residential suburb, mostly to the west of the Princes Highway and industrial, to the east. Along the highway is a strip of commercial ventures such as a Woolworth's and several specialty stores.

Unanderra has several local attractions, including a Kebab shop, an old school building in the Woolworth's carpark, several historic houses, a community centre mural depicting the suburb's history and it is the beginning of the branch off the Unanderra - Moss Vale railway line. The community centre is housed in the former Central Illawarra Municipal Council Chambers, opened in 1901. This operated until the merging of the North Illawarra and Central Illawarra chambers to create the City of Greater Wollongong in 1947. The Unanderra Branch Library opened in 1955 within the centre and was enlarged in 1960.

The suburb lies on the Illawarra coastal plain, with its west border in the lower foothills of Mount Kembla. From the highway it is possible to see Mount Kembla and it has a distinctly different shape compared to other views of it.


At the time of its founding it was known as Charcoal or Charcoal Creek, the name of a prominent waterway through the area.
