http://www.expressway.online/oldsite/photogallery/roads/nsw/numbered/nr1/mtousleyrd/index.htm

Mount Ousley Road is the controlled access road that forms the link between the north and south sections of the F6 Southern Freeway. It also serves as the main route up/down the Illawarra Escarpment and the major entrance to Wollongong.

Mount Ousley Road was constructed as a defence route during the 1940’s to provide an easier route up and down the Illawarra Escarpment than the existing Bulli Pass and Mount Keira routes, and Mount Ousley Road was connected to the F6 at Gwynneville in March 1964.

Length:
16 km
