Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mount Nebo is a tall hill, part of the Illawarra escarpment foothills on the edge of the suburban fringe of the city of Wollongong, New South Wales. Its summit (252 metres above sea level), is reached by a steep road (O'Brien's Road) from the suburb of Figtree. O'Brien's Road is unusual in that it was built as a private toll road in the early 19th century to connect Sydney and the Illawarra. O'Briens Road began at the locally famous fig tree that gave the name to Figtree. Views from the top look over Wollongong, Lake Illawarra and the local mountains. Nebo was the aboriginal name for the hill, and the name has been kept as in the case of Woonona Mountain and Mount Warrigal hill at Lake Illawarra.
