    Stumbled across this on the way back to Sydney from our trip to The Blue Mountains. Great views and no barriers on this one! Probably wouldn't take children to this one but we really enjoyed the views...  more »

    I took a trip to the rock lookout recently for a photography session as I've heard this is a great spot. The road to the parking is quite gravelly so it's best to take your time. There is a decent amo...  more »

    Wonderful views across to the mountains and over the river. There is a longer walk you can do to a second lookout but make sure you take some water with you.  more »

  • Don't waste your time. There are no signs to help you find the lookout or parking anywhere and you will be driving on a crappy road back and forth.
  • Review: 4.5*! Location: Getting to here is the only downfall that I have to say about this place. Get a hire car, as it's not worth trembling your car & weakening your suspension on the unsurfaced corrugated road to here!!! :( Service: There are no faclities here. Atmosphere: Breathtaking! Perfect for a special moment or a quick picnic. Synopsis: Spectacular views when you finally get here!!! :) AAA+++
  • Good views. Try not to take a lowered car unless you want to lose your exhaust.
  • Beautiful place to watch the sunset. The sign "The Rock Lookout" was not there when we went, so we ended up walking for a further 5-10 minutes to the end of the path. After a 1-2 minute walk from the parking lot, turn left and there will be (downward) stairs that will lead to the lookout. Watch your step.
  • No proper directions.. but once you reach the rock lookout.. the river view is beautiful..
