Mt Keira has it all to be a world class tourist destination.  It has natural beauty, stunning scenic outlook, walking tracks and trails, wildlife and positioned within close proximity to Wollongong CBD.  So why then have we not embraced this perfectly positioned location as a worldwide tourism destination?

The potential for Mt Keira to be a world class adventure park with a gondola, restaurant and abundant mountain bike trails is necessary as we pitch ourselves as a tourism destination to the international market.

The Shadow Minister for the Illawarra, Ryan Park MP is urging the community to jump on board and back Mount Keira to be the best tourist attraction for our region.

I would love for our community to embrace Mt Keira as the best tourist destination in Wollongong by showing their support and voting one for Mt Keira.

Considering our close proximity to Sydney and the vast amount of international and domestic tourist visiting the City, we need to capitalise on our geographically beautiful location as a tourist denstination and tap into that market.

I have long lobbied for Mt Keira to receive an injection of funds to help restore it to the world class tourist destination it can be.
