After the crowds and coaches at Three Sisters, we decided to find a quieter view, so went to mount hay and got that and more!! No one was there, the drive up was beautiful, giving you a feeling of wilderness and freedom, through the trees and plants. There are many places to stop and walk, but carry onto the top,... More

A little way out of town along dirt road that requires some care in places. Short walk, approx 45 minutes return. Crowd-free and stunning views. You could drive further along Mt Hay Rd to further walks if you have the time.

This is a reasonably easy walk - about 1.5km each way. Most walks in the Blue Mountains involve a serious uphill slog on the return trip, but Fortress Rock spares you that exhaustion. There is a short slope right at the beginning of the walk and the rest is along a ridge to a rather impressive view. We walked in... More
