Welcome to the Illawarra Mining and Metallurgy Heritage Trail – a knowledge resource which seeks to recognise, honour and make more widely known the rich industrial history of the Illawarra region of New South Wales. Because of its location and natural resources, the Illawarra has a long association with mining and metallurgy which continues to this day. Development of this website has been undertaken by the Illawarra branch of the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, with financial support from the sponsors shown below.
