Governor Lachlan Macquarie Print Page
Monument commemorates Macquarie`s passing in 1822.
Governor Lachlan Macquarie wrote of `this grand prospect` when he stood near this spot in 1822 during a trip to the Illawarra: `On our arrival at the summit of the mountain, we were gratified with a very grand magnificent bird`s eye view of the ocean, the 5 Islands, and of the greater part of the low country of Illawarra...The whole face of the mountain is clothed with the largest and finest forest trees I have ever seen in the colony`. However, he also noted that most of the red cedar had already been `cut down and carried away to Sydney`.
