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 from the lookout!

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.

I can mimic a lot of what the others have said. Limited facilities you will need to bring water and food. Take the left hand path at the fork just after the car park and it's only a short walk. Well worth the walk. Stunning

This attraction has one locator signboard on the corner of Mulgoa Road and Fairlight Road, so you could easily be unaware that this great viewing platform is available. Drive up past the Schoenstatt Grotto right to the end of Fairlight Road (about 2kms is gravel)....More

Hi Riss11, Do not take your dog to the lookout, as pk and Louise said before, the lookout is located close to the Blue Mountains and a national reserve. Cheers, Rod
