Hill 60 Lookout

Military Road, Port Kembla NSW 2505
Hill 60 Lookout is reached via a narrow but well formed established walking track and offers spectacular views up and down the coast line. A series of post and rail guards can be found at this interesting and spectacular spot. Just below the lookout are beaches fished commercially by local Aboriginal fishermen up until the 1940s. The area has numerous Aboriginal shell middens and artefacts scattered along its shores. Deep beneath the lookout lies a series of fortifications, established at the beginning of World War II. These fortifications housed large guns which were put in place to protect the vital industrial centre of Port Kembla. Although there are no longer any large guns here the concrete bunkers can be clearly seen. These bunkers are connected to a series of underground tunnels which honeycomb the entire area. These tunnels are not accessible to the public.

Olympic Boulevard, Port Kembla NSW 2505
Port Kembla Beach is regarded as one of Wollongong's most prestigious beaches. It is located approximately 11 kilometres south of Wollongong. The surf club was established in 1910, with bathing at Port Kembla Beach dating back to the 1900s and the first dressing sheds erected in 1912. The surf club is perched on the high fore dune, overlooking the northern end of Port Kembla Beach, the longest in the Wollongong area at 6.6 kilometres. The club is complemented by a large car park next door. There is also a large Olympic pool on the northern rocks. The beach is patrolled from the end of September to the end of April.

Port Kembla Billy Cart Derby

Wentworth Street, Port Kembla NSW 2505
The Port Kembla Billy Cart Derby is one of the Illawarra's most popular events. The centrepiece of the festival is the Derby, with LA PD, Batman, and a whacky bride and groom - just some of the crazy characters that fly down Port Kembla's main street in the annual event. The Derby festival features four live music venues, muscle cars, competitions and prizes, carnivals and rides, and evening Rockabilly Dance with a vintage photo booth and more crazy fun....
