A proposal to mine Windang Island for coal appeared in the Illawarra Mercury August 1888 but did not eventuate. In the 1890’s the private company The Illawarra Harbour and Land Corporation was given permission to build a harbour within Lake Illawarra. Plans included dredging a 23 feet deep and 100 feet wide channel across the lake; allowing ships access to Elizabeth Point (near Tallawarra Power Station) for loading coal and lead. A tie wall was built from Windang Island to the southern channel wall. About £4,000 was spent on the works, but heavy seas soon destroyed the wall. The company could not secure further capital, and by the early 1900’s work was abandoned. All that remains today are the rails, and wheels from trolleys, that were used to transport rock for the break wall by rail.
