Illawarra 200 Exhibition to Tour Warrigal Albion Park Rail
- Created on Monday, 29 August 2016 15:21
Illawarra 200 is a joint initiative between Shellharbour and Wollongong City Council's which aims to recognise the 200th anniversary of land grants issued in the Illawarra.
In 1815 some of the Illawarra’s traditional custodians led some white settlers and their cattle down the escarpment. The settlers began to farm the area – a place rich in red cedar trees, farmland and coal. This marked a new chapter in the story of our area, and it’s this new direction that we’re commemorating 200 years on.
