First we saw Ruby’s. Then a bit further on we noticed the Mount Kembla Bowling Club. We stopped there and went in for some refreshments.

Some flowers near the entrance to the club.

Peter had a glass of orange juice, I had some tea.

    Ruby’s seemed to be a rather expensive restaurant in the backwoods of the Illawarra

    The area around Mt Kembla is a historical, significant on.
    Coal mines, a dying industry, are still lurking about among the trees.

    One can still see the old miner’s cottages, but the new middle class is enjoying a night out there.

      Here is something about the history of the place:

      “Nestled in the historic mining village of Kembla Heights, Ruby’s Mount Kembla first traded as the village store and Post Office to a thriving community of coal miners and their families in the late 1800’s.

      Named after Ruby Moore – a famous local resident and Post Mistress during the 1920’s and 1930’s, the store has undergone much careful restoration and is now home to one of the most well loved restaurants in the Illawarra.”
