Great views of the area and beyond
Apr. 2021
Short drive to top of the mountain. Great view over Bowral and surrounds. There is a faded sign that shows the various highlights so a new sign would be very helpful. It is still worth the drive to take in the views.

Drove all the way up - past beautiful homes- dreadful road in need of repair... three so called lookouts. Mostly obscured by trees. Could barely see anything... what a waste of time

A view!

Driving up to this lookout, there are little offshoots for hikers. Well sign posted tracks. Worth a stop and look.

Lovely relaxing drive or walk, just a lookout and nothing more
Jul. 2020
So many cars drive up here on a weekend, there aren't many parking spaces so I assume most only stop for a few minutes to look, but it's easy to walk there from Bowral. You can put Mount Gibraltar into Google Maps and just walk it. Yes, there's a fairly steep hill to climb, but it only takes half an hour or so to walk up there, and it's very rewarding. You can walk up there & down to Mittagong within 2 hours if you wish.
You can see all of Bowral from the top, and if you walk around further you can see all of Mittagong. There's a basic toilet up there if you need it, but there's better public toilets in Mittagong and Bowral.

walk walk and more walk

We cheated and started this walk at 3/4 way up. It was still a good climb. There is no footpath in places so we walked on the road watching out for cars. Views are spectacular

Worth a visit for the views and a look around. We explored off the track and found some nice wet areas with interesting plants!

Lovely lookout
Jan. 2020
Unfortunately the recent dry weather has taken its toll
on the shrubs and trees, But if your up for a little exercise take a walk
down the steps to the base of the mountain or visa versa.
The Lookout is a great spot to see the changing of seasons.

This is literally a high point in the Highlands
Nov. 2018
This reserve is easily accessed by conventional vehicle, and offers some lookouts with differing views and aspects from this ~860m peak. Snow is rare in the highlands but when it is in on, this is a good place for it because it is higher than anywhere in the area.

Some of the forested areas have been carefully regenerated and are now pleasant ferny glades. Others remain compromised by weeds, including Sweet Pittosporum, Ivy, Radiata Pine etc. But there are more areas that are intact than there are degraded areas, and you can explore tall and wet forest through to shrublands amongst large expanses of rock on the highest ground. Some of the vegetation communities are likely unique to this site.

It could do with a bit of in upgrade in terms of tourist facilities and interpretive signage, and it would be good to see walks better mapped and signed.

Pleasant & Picturesque

Beautiful views and outlook over Bowral, Mittagong and the Southern Highlands. Peaceful tranquil bush land reserve and a quiet escape to enjoy nature ... the only sounds being from the bird life. Nice walks and views.
