There are many sporting hero's that cut their teeth in the competitive junior grades of all sports the area has to offer. Famous for the "Dapto Dogs" (greyhound racing) the area also has a proud tradition of looking out for each other, with a genuine sense of community spirit. The Dapto Markets and Show are community highlights. A growing area with great amounts of land still undeveloped, it is a city in the making

"Dapto - Famous for greyhound racing"

Dapto is south of Sydney and is situation on the western side of lake Illawarra Dapto is not far from Wollongong and some great beaches of the south coast. Dapto was mainly a farming area until a few years ago but has now become a more residential area. Probably best known for ground racing the Dapto Dogs are held regularly and attract good crowds and are well supported by punters. There are good shopping facilities at Dapto mall and other selected shops and accommodation includes caravan and camping parks with plenty of facilities, hotels and motels as well as guest houses and holiday apartments. There are plenty of national parks in the area for those who like to explore and some stunning views of the area to be had from several lookouts and vantage points.
