The walk enjoys a lush cabbage tree palm forest and explores historic mining sites around the Mt Kembla area, including a stop in the Windy Gully cemetery. The walk is quite long and does have some hills, but is not overly strenuous. The preference is for adults, but if you want to bring older children over 10yo who are adept at bushwalking it's fine to bring them.

24 Feb, Thu 6:30PM Film – Where The Water Starts
Illawarra Branch
Graham B.
Talk | A talk or slide show presentation.We’re pleased to be able to host a screening of ‘Where the Water Starts’ at the Gala Cinema Warrawong on Thursday February 24 at 6:30pm. This is a beautiful film about Kosciuszko National Park made by Mandy King and Fabio Cavadini. It focuses on the Aboriginal ranger Richard Swain and the cultural significance of the park. It also covers some of the terrible threats: the Black Summer fires, feral horses and lack of proper government care. The filmmakers and possibly one of the people featured in the film will attend the screening to chat with us. This date may seem a long way off but the arrangement between the distributor and the cinema is that we need to sell 46 seats in advance to secure the screening. The earlier we can do this the better, so please go to the website and buy some tickets. Follow the instructions in the link below to register with Fanforce films first. Tickets are $20 plus a small booking fee. FanForce | Where The Water Starts Gala Cinemas Warrawong (fan-force.com)
