  • Spectacular views. Geologically you’re in the Blue Mountains escarpment despite being on the Sydney side of the Nepean because the river cuts through it here. Which is a fun fact all of its own.
  • The last 2.5 km is dirt road, so be prepared for a bumpy ride. Bring your bugs repellant to the spot. Very nice view to hang around once.
  • Very much worth the ride along the rough dirt road to get there. A steep walk to the lookout totally inaccessible for wheelchairs or anyone with a walking disability. ATM totally burned out by a recent bushfire. No water no shops no toilets so be prepared. Bring everything but leave no junk behind like others before us... it is a shame that even after the bushfire people have left rubbish behind since then!! Get it together Australians let's keep our country pristine!!
  • Amazing view from up high. Unsealed road to the lookout accessible by car, then a short steep walk down to the rock. The rock platform has no fence over the steep drop, so be careful.
  • It's ok, if you like 2 minute hikes and tweens listening to Mariah Carey on their phones.
