Starting from the car park opposite the truck stop on Mount Ousley Road, Mount Keira, this walk takes you to the Brokers Nose Lookout and back via the Brokers Nose Walk. This moderately easy walk meanders along the top of the Illawarra Escarpment to the Brokers Nose Lookout, located within the Illawarra Escarpment State Conservation Area, which offers incredible views of Wollongong's pristine coastline from an elevation of approximately 440m above sea level. The walk initially follows the escarpment cliff line through dense bushland, then emerges into a clearing with excellent views over Balgownie. From there, the walk continues through the rainforest, passing a television transmission tower before reaching the cliff edge lookout, which offers panoramic views over the greater Wollongong area below and the ocean beyond. In late winter and spring, colourful displays of wildflowers can be seen along the trail, which attract a variety of birdlife. The trail is quite straightforward yet has no signage, only a closed gate at the start, and can get very muddy and slippery after rainfall. This walk consists of wide and narrow, gently undulating walking trails, with compacted natural surfaces, uneven natural surfaces and rocky sections, suitable for average fitness levels. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
