Mount Kembla Ring Track

Mount Kembla is a significant Aboriginal site for the Wodi Wodi people, featuring in many of their creation stories. The impressive natural landmark also acts as a dramatic backdrop for the Ring track, with lush vegetation and a glimpse of local history on a terrific five kilometre loop.

With access to the scenic Kembla lookout (via the Summit track), there’s much to see, from native birdwatching to spectacular views of the NSW coast. So don’t forget your hiking boots.

The Ring track quickly descends from shaded slopes into cool rainforest. Cycling offers a thrilling alternative on the fire trail. Also, note the closed entrances to two early coal mines – the area is rich with fascinating Illawarra heritage.
