From the lookout it doesn't look like much, but there are actually cliff down there hidden in the trees

Access Issues: inherited from Mt Keira

Mt Keira Summit is 1.2 hr drive south of Sydney CBD. The summit overlooks the city of Wollongong (9th largest city in Australia) and has superb views up the southern coastline.


Below the northern lookout platforms, just right of the shop( as you stand in the car park and look north)

Jump the fence at the lookout and take the obvious path into the trees, descend down the spur for about 3-4min until you arrive at the base of the cliffs

Ethic: inherited from Mt Keira

"The Big K" is worthwhile for a day trip from Sydney and a very good local cliff for those that live around the Illawarra - R.Young
