  • The views are amazing, it is really worth the drive up there, you might miss the turn off and there isn't much parking but there are three amazing lookouts that give amazing views.  more »
  • The views of the area on a clear day is amazing. If its not too windy, you can hear the car clubs in the distance going on their drive days and hear all the natural beauty.  more »
  • This place is just fantastic and not many people have discovered how lovely it is. Great to sit at the top with a wine and cheese platter and watch the sun set.  more »

  • Excellent views, and well worth trip. Was fascinated with 12-padlock configuration of locked access to gate at top : a very neat engineering device!
  • Great trip up from Jamberoo, Scenic Some outstanding views to 7 mile beach as well as Kiama and Coast line. Good place to bring a picnic. Lots of Seating available, some well hidden in the bushes. Plenty of parking . Lots of space for running around. Toilets available near the towers but at below ground level, so follow the path from the Top (west facing ) look out Bring your own water, no drinking water. Two of the look outs are an easy walk, the third is a bit of a hike back up (stairs, level 3 climb, a few places to stop). Easy access from carpark to first look out, looking toward Kiama, easily accessible (not sure about wheel chairs ) , has a good viewing platform. The Top look out , looking west towards escarpment is well built , has a good view platform and easy to get to , except the hike up from the car park. The southern most look out has the best views, to Seven mile beach and Gerroa, but has no clear Cement path so you can feel like a bit of an explorer until you see a path marker. This one is a bit of a hike back , as it has stairs , about a level 3 climb with a few places to stop. Nice seating in the trees though. Really well done. Good phone signal there for some reason ..
  • Great drive to get up here and views over the Illawarra escarpment and Jamberoo Valley are fantastic.
  • Stunning views from Kiama or Jamberoo. What a wonderful drive!
  • Small but it does have nice view. But there really isn't much else to do here and if it's cloudy there is a chance you with see nothing.
