  • Great views! Go a little past the high rock at the bus turning bay for a quieter time, with a snip of a view of the east side of the Three Sisters, plus the mid-cliff walk from Wentworth Falls to Valley of the Waters. Binoculars useful. Take care to NOT go close to the unfenced cliff edge! On a clear night the view of the stars here is spectacular due to low light pollution.
  • Great view, but a shame of all the carvings of dates and names in the rock. It's less crowded than the Three sisters lookout a bit further, but also not a lot of parking space (10 or so). Once you leave the sealed road, there's about 100m of unsealed road that will lead you directly to the spot, easy accessible for most people.
