This lookout is about a kilometre north of the Bald Hill lookout and hang gliding area at Stanwell Tops but seems almost as popular, with a lot of cars and people around on weekends. There are nice views of the forested coast and look down...More

We did the trail down to the Figure 8 pools. The trails from here are very well marked. The trails themselves offer stunning views, as does the lookout itself. This is one of those rare things that provide unforgettable experiences that costs you almost nothing....More

Just after you come out of the Royal National Park, is this amazing look out spot. If you have camera with great zoom, will capture some great photos of Seacliff Bridge in background.

This would be a great place to stop on a clear day in winter to watch whales. Car parking can be problematic, but it is worth stopping to look at the view up and down the coast.

After driving through the Royal National Park, this is a lovely place to stop and get your bearings. The view is to die for - you are so high up and the coastline stretches away for miles to the south.

After the Royal National Park - tall vegetation right to the road's edge - it was a pleasure for a quick stop and to look out over the ocean (Pacific).

Here's the first stop after your exit from Royal National Park and it's the first view of Sea Cliff Bridge which is a bit far away. However, you can stop at te next Bald Hill Lookout instead for a closer view if you don't want...More

We found this place accidentally - while driving from Sydney to Melbourne we spotted a place where lots of cars were parking and then we saw lots of paragliders flying in the air. So we decided to stop and take a look. It turned out...More
