We drove up and visited the 3 Gibraltar lookouts, Bowral, Jellore and Mittagong. Lovely views over the towns and the surrounding areas. We had great weather so could see a great distance. Easy to get to. Toilets available st the Bowral lookout.

Some great photographs to be had from the lookouts. Especially on a sunny day the view goes on and on. It isn't really a "tourist spot", no food, coffee or mc'donalds which is a good thing most of the time. Limited parking and no proper...More
