Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or long60 Best walks | This is one of the NPA's 60 best walks.The southern Wollongong suburb of Farmborough Heights borders the Escarpment and its upper reaches are presently being rezoned for urban development. From one such site we climb through rainforest and past various historic structures from an old mining settlement. We make another attempt to reach the summit of Mt Kembla with spectacular views. Return via Ring Track. Steep and overgrown in places.
