Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Easy drive, easy walk, lovely views on a clear day. Well worth the effort and doesn't take too long to drive there.

It is a great viewing platform but you need a clear day. The views up there are no doubt exceptional.

Short drive up the mountain behind Kiama. Lovely views of the coast, was a bit over cast the day I was there but still,could see long distance. One platform is really good. It takes in the views of Kiama area. There is a second platform that looks towards the escarpment to the west.

Saddleback mmountain lookout offers visitors spectacular views to the east over the ocean and to the north to Bulli from the cantilevered cantilevered viewing platform. Close to the tourist town of Kiama. Definitely worth a visit.

We really enjoyed the drive and the 2 lookouts weren't to did not disappoint. One of the lookout had step stairs but if you are able to manage its worth the effort

Quite a steep windy road there. Once in the car park there is a sign mapping out the 3 lookouts. One up the hill, one to the left and one to the right. The one up the hill is a 5 min walk and blocked by trees so a waste of time. Toilets can be found on this path. The one to the left is not well signed posted. You have to walk down a grassy hill and enter a path at the bottom that leads you into a tree covered path for about 5 min. While this view is lovely the best and easily accessible lookout is the one directly off the car park to the right. It is only a 1-2 min walk and has the far superior views. Definitely worth a visit

There is 3 views to see here. The western is a waste of time as the view you can only see the tops of the mountains as it is over grown. Needs a major trim and the views will be amazing. The other 2 are great

This lookout has a great view of the Illawarra region. The drive up to the viewing platform is beautiful and you see lots of farm animals and the beautiful south coast countryside. You can have lunch on the platform and admire the view.

Recommend going on a clear day as there is more visibility!

This is a must do when in the area. Spectacular views on 3 sides - make sure you visit each of the 3 viewpoints. You may also see kangaroos up there as we did. Views up to Wollongong and down to the Shoalhaven are wonderful.
