  • 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+++
  • 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..
  • Awesome 180° views of Nepean River. No facilities. No clear signposts from carpark; track has left and right forks (take left fork). Easy 150m walk then steep dsscent down poor stairs. You can climb the Rock itself up dangerously narrow stairs cut into southern side. Small railing at top then no fencing... so be careful Poor quality road with lots of potholes.
  • Amazing views over the Nepean river. A wonderful place to discover.
