  • I visited in the Blue Mountains tour. As you see in the photo, the fence without cliffs and scary. You can feel the immensity of nature, and this land was formed by erosion due to wind and rain. Per trees spread over the mountains of the greatness of nature inevitably been.

  • Lincoln’s Rock or Flat Rock is unfenced lookout point in the Tableland area. This location is great for sunset views. If sitting down and watching the sun go down is your kind of fun, this is the plac...  more »

  • Great views! Go a little past the high rock at the bus turning bay for a quieter time, with a snip of a view of the east side of the Three Sisters, plus the mid-cliff walk from Wentworth Falls to Valley of the Waters. Binoculars useful. Take care to NOT go close to the unfenced cliff edge! On a clear night the view of the stars here is spectacular due to low light pollution.
  • Great view, but a shame of all the carvings of dates and names in the rock. It's less crowded than the Three sisters lookout a bit further, but also not a lot of parking space (10 or so). Once you leave the sealed road, there's about 100m of unsealed road that will lead you directly to the spot, easy accessible for most people.
  • Amazingly me and my wife had about 40 mins just to ourselves. We set there just looking at the scenery without noise from the crowd or anyone coming over wanting to take pictures. Took a while when we first arrived but the crowd cleared soon after. Being able to have that for almost an hour was one of the greatest highlights of Auzzy. Going around almost all the sight seeing around blue mountains, we would say this was the best we've had.
  • Gorgeous spot regardless of weather. Beware the wind and the edge as there are no safety rails. There are some false edges where you can get a photo where it looks like you're on the edge without having to take your chances with a deadly drop.
  • On a sunny morning the view over the valley is amazing. Buses longer than 10m can't reach the parking nearby so passengers should walk about 30 mins (there's a sign and turning possibilities). The road to Lincoln's gets worse as you get closer, certainly after the T-intersection, and ends in a dirt road. Any car can reach the tiny car park that is right at the rock, but the road is wide enough to park along the side if you don't dare continue as there are many (deep) potholes. Any larger vehicle and certainly 4 wheel drives won't have any problems though. For the wreck fanatics: for some reason people have pushed off several cars throughout the years and they're visible from the edge.
