Bushwalkers can now explore a new track at Mount Kembla, with sweeping views of Cordeaux Heights and beyond at its peak.

Stage three of the Memorial Pathway, a collaborative project between South32’s Dendrobium Community Enhancement Program and local residents, was officially opened to the public on Tuesday.

The new section begins from the corner of Benjamin Road and Kirkwood Place and is a comfortable 23 minute walk up to the lookout which is at the site of the former Nebo Colliery’s Bradford Breaker Building.

The Breaker building used to break coal from the Nebo mine into smaller pieces for transport by rail to the Port Kembla Steelworks.

At the top walkers can look over the area of the coal transport route of last century to the start of the Pathway at the foot of Cordeaux Road.

The path then connects with the newly completed roadside pathway to Cordeaux Heights and Unanderra.
