You can drive up the mountain to the three different lookouts from either the Bowral or Mittagong sides.

We started from the Bowral side and visited the Bowral Lookout first. This was the best maintained lookout of the three with a separate off-road car park, a grassed area with some picnic tables and a well maintained, relatively flat, path of no more than 100 metres down to the lookout. The views over the Bowral township were excellent.

The next was the Jellore Lookout where we had to park the car on the side of the road. Short downhill walk to the lookout with views over the Gibraltar Park area and the hills beyond. Not that interesting.

Next was the Mittagong Lookout. Again no separate car park. This lookout was not that well maintained. Again a short walk to the lookout with views over Mittagong.

We didn't do any of the walks.

Worth a visit.

Lovely spot for a walk with friends. Excellent views of the surrounding area. Enjoy some time out in nature to think, relax and rest

A short drive uphill took us to this scenic spot with picnic tables at Bowral Lookout. There were plenty of parking spaces and it was not crowded on a weekday. The Jelore Lookout, just a short drive further up, was also worth a visit.

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

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

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.

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!
