We stopped here while on a motorbike ride. The views are amazing and if so inclined you can go hang gliding or just relax and watch the hang gliders and parasailors take off and land.

We took friends to have a look. Great view but a little hazy and very hot on the day. We hadn’t been here for a while but the improvements to the car parking and the amenities block were good to see.

Breathtaking view of Pacific Drive. Told that so many car commercials were shot from this point. You can also hangglide from this spot.

This take-off area is excellent because of the constant updraft from the wind hitting the hill. With a slight breeze the hang gliders already can come higher than the hill. Their landing is down on the sandy beach.

Worth the Be there in 10 minutes minute drive north of Wollongong. As it was raining, no skydiving. But still very picturesque. Recommended.

This is a beautiful lookout to Stanwell Top that travelers should not miss out. Apart from the great view, witnessing the taking off of Hang Gliding is just another mind-blowing experience. It is all free of charge!

The lookout itself is an easy drive south from Sydney. The weather can be fickle here, looking south on this day it was beautiful, north dark and grey. A few paragliders heading off. There are a couple of small car parks but it can get...More
