Kembla Heights Excursion

MT  KEMBLA

Friday 18 August

Darian Zam, author of Coalfaces will lead a walking tour of Kembla Heights.  The walk will take about an hour after which we will go to the Mt Kembla Hotel for lunch.

The houses in Kembla Heights were built about 1896 for Mt Kembla mine workers.  It is a rare and intact example of an early mining village. The buildings are excellent examples of vernacular architecture from the Federation period.

This is a self-drive excursion.  Anyone who would like a lift or to share a ride, please meet at the Museum, 11 Market St at 10.00am.  We will arrive at the parking area near the Kembla Heights Bowling Club (Church Lane) about 11.30am.

Whichever mode of transport you intend to take, please advise Jeanette Hancock so that we know who is participating and what ride-sharing we need to organise.

Cost: $10.00

Lunch: own cost

RSVP: Jeanette Hancock (0439 008 343) or info@illawarramuseum.com  by 28 July
