A mother plunged to her death from her daughter's favourite clifftop lookout with the two-year-old in her arms in a suspected murder-suicide. 

The bodies of Tanja Ludwig, 33, and her daughter Tilly were found at the base of a cliff below picturesque tourist hot spot Robertson Lookout at Mt Keira, near Wollongong, on Tuesday night.

Jenae Johnston, the founder of Bushwalk the Gong and a close friend of Ms Ludwig's, said the lookout was Tilly's favourite spot.

'She shared how much her daughter loved the trees and how she ran along the pathway enjoying it so much,' Mrs Johnston said.
