Please be careful with kids
Mar. 2021
You should consider going if you have children in your group who don’t listen to instructions. There are no safety guards or rails etc, so it would be very easy for something to happen if kids are behaving themselves. Luckily, my friend had her kids under strict supervision.

Lovely views

An easy walk of around 300 mteres to rocky lookout over Nepean River and views to Blue Mountains. No handrails or security fencing so need to be careful and not a place for kids to run amuck. Good free parking at end of around 2km well maintained gravel road. No facilities at all. From the same starting point, is also a 5km roundtrip walk to Rileys Lookout along a fire trail.

Lovely lookout which I regularly attend! Simple walk with different terrains. Easy for young ages. Also not that popular so is nice for some peace and quiet

This lookout is spectacular....it is a short walk from a carpark and you need to be careful as there are no railings on the edge. The view is UNBELIEVABLE!

Worth it

Get away from the well worn route to the Blue Mountains and try The Rock lookout. With very little effort you are rewarded with fantastic views of the Nepean River and over the lower reaches of the Blue Mountains NP. Take care with little ones as there are no safety barriers for curious individuals.

LOOK OUT!
Jun. 2018 • Friends
An absolutely stunning view of the Nepean Gorge and river, worth the short dirt track drive.
Bring your camera, but be warned there arent many safety fences and people have fallen. keep your children close by and under observation.

The track to the lookout from the car park is well marked but in need of some maintenance. NOT recommended for Disabled or someone not steady on there feet.

Short walk with Amazing Views
Jul. 2018 • Family
On a clear day this short 500 meter walk to the Rock Lookout is well worth it if you are in Mulgoa. Not for young children there are no fences or guard rails once you get to this high up position. For adults the easy, though uneven walk leads to some of the most amazing views of the Nepean river. Well worth the little adventure.

Just a short drive south of Penrth is this hidden gem. Spectacular vistas and breathtaking views of this section of the Nepean River await you if you're prepared to venture to this quiet and somewhat isolated area near Mulgoa. From the car park it's only a short walk to the lookout and well worth the effort ... ... there you'll be rewarded with the peace and tranquility of this beautiful area
