Location and features
With an elevation of approximately 440 metres (1,440 ft) AMSL, Brokers Nose, as it is more commonly known as, is located about 3 kilometres (1.9 mi) west of and about 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) south-west of . At its summit there is a television transmission tower. There is a track leading to the top but both track and summit are open to the public; the summit is protected as part of the Illawarra Escarpment State Recreation Area.
The name is vague in its origins and there are three possible explanations for it. One tells that an early settler named Brooker was the origin, the second that poor miners would take their families up to the summit for picnics, and they were brokers (poor people), and the third says that the cliff outcrop resembles the nose of a broker.
