Mount Keira Lookout

Mt Keira is a local landmark of Wollongong, towering 463.9 metres high and casting its protective shadow over this beautiful city. It’s located just four kilometres northwest of Wollongong’s Central Business District, it forms part of the Illawarra escarpment and provides sweeping views over Wollongong.

Keira is an Indigenous Australian term meaning large lagoon or high mountain. The Dharawal Aboriginal people called it Djera, meaning wild turkey. The first maps of the area called it Keera, later adding the i. The mountain is usually pronounced Kee-rah.

The natural beauty of Mt Keira gives an unspoiled backdrop to the City of Wollongong. It’s home to the popular 5.5 kilometre Mt Keira Ring Track, a walking track which passes through varied terrains and forests of the Illawarra Escarpment, starting and finishing in a scenic picnic spot.

Mt Keira lookout is located on Mt Keira Road and is accessible seven days a week during daylight hours. There is a kiosk serving coffee and light meals as well as barbecue facilities and public toilets.
