Lake Heights

Parish: Wollongong
County: Camden

Lake Heights is on the foreshore of Lake Illawarra, west of Warrawong and Port Kembla.

We're currently working on more information for this page.

Local communities of Aboriginal people were the original inhabitants and Traditional Custodians of Illawarra Land. Their dialect is a variant of the Dharawal language.

Before European settlement, the Aboriginal people of the region lived in small family groups with complicated social structures and close associations with specific areas.

Suburb boundaries do not reflect the cultural boundaries of the local Aboriginal community.

Traditional Custodians today are descendants of the original inhabitants and have ongoing spiritual and cultural ties to the Land and waterways where their ancestors lived.

Do have historical information, family stories or photographs of Lake Heights ?

We welcome donations of historical and recent material about our region, as long as there are no restrictions on how material can be used.
