Illawarra Escarpment Mountain Bike Concept Plan - Mount Kembla

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

We’re working with the National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) to explore the development of mountain bike trails and associated infrastructure on the Illawarra Escarpment to promote cycling and mountain biking in our city.

This work builds on the draft Illawarra Escarpment Mountain Bike Strategy, which was on public exhibition in late 2018. The draft strategy focused on providing safe sustainable recreation for a broad range of riders and the prevention and removal of informal trails across the escarpment.

Community feedback from the public exhibition and input of the Illawarra Escarpment Mountain Bike Advisory Group is being used to explore potential options between Mt Kembla and Mt Keira. The emphasis is on creating safe, sustainable recreation that minimises negative impacts on residents and landowners.

We're inviting residents and property owners from Mount Kembla and Kembla Heights to information sessions to learn more about the Draft Illawarra Escarpment Mountain Bike Concept Plan, share ideas and provide feedback.
