A prominent local landmark at 469 metres above sea level, Mount Keira is part of the Illawarra Escarpment and its natural beauty gives a lush, green backdrop to the city of Wollongong. A dream location for many, with a variety of properties ranging from luxury homes to bush sanctuary hideaways it enjoys superb proximity to the University, quality schools and is just 4 kilometres from Wollongong’s CBD.
Noted for its spectacular views of the city from its summit lookout and early history of coal mining, it was formed between 60 to 80 million years ago as part of Illawarra Escarpment fold. A very popular destination for visitors and residents is the 9.4 hectacre Summit Park used extensively for recreation, bushwalking, rock climbing and picnicking. There is also a café/restaurant within the park serving Devonshire teas and light meals.
Keira is an indigenous term meaning ‘large lagoon’ or ‘high mountain’. The aborigines named it Djera meaning ‘wild turkey’. Early maps portrayed it as Keera, the ‘i’ being added later. On the southern side, access to Byarong Park, the Girl Guides and Boy Scout camps, the now closed Kemira Coal Mine and the summit lookout is by way of Mount Keira Road which turns into Queen Elizabeth Drive. In 1939 the scout camp was first established by Sid Hoskins.
The main Mount Keira road was constructed between 1835-1836 by convict labour. Overseen by Surveyor General Thomas Mitchell, it used much of the route used by O’Briens Road but then descending the southern
and western slopes of Mount Keira rather than Mount Nebo, a nearby hill to Mount Keira’s south. Of historical interest, Byarong Park was originally a pit pony grazing area and the ponies were stabled there in the early days at the current site of the Girl Guide camp.
