Not sure if this has been posted before, did a quick search and nothing came up

"A gondola connecting the Wollongong escarpment to the beach is the centrepiece of a grand plan to transform Mount Keira into an adventure playground.

The proposal, put forward by Destination Wollongong, aims to revitalise the under-utilised mountain and encourage people to visit the region by capitalising on growing interest in adventure tourism.

Stretching from the summit to Stuart Park, the cable car would give tourists panoramic views and provide transportation to the other proposed attractions on the mountain peak.

Estimates put the cost of an eight-person gondola linking the summit to Stuart Park at $15 million.

Included in the Mount Keira Adventure Playground overview are a zip line, rock climbing, bungee jumping, native bird sanctuary, tree top adventure park, eco lodge, mountain bike trails, cafe and function centre."

Thought it was fairly significant so those that look after advocacy in the area, if you haven't already, get onto this like a rash!. If this is going to happen we need to have official downhill trails included in the proposals from the start, and that would also be where the big tourism and money drawcard would be. The mind boggles at how many people would travel to go there from NSW for starters.
