Located along Cliff Road just up past Scenic World, Eagle Hawk Lookout is quite spectacular. It gives you wonderful views down and across the valley as well as of the Three Sisters.
We actually stayed for quite a while at the lookout watching the National Parks helicopter dropping off big bags along one of the tracks. Quite impressive!
A lack of parking on the narrow Cliff Road is the only draw back with this lookout. There is only room for a couple of cars.

This is the perfect lookout for a great photo of the Three Sisters. Big tip........ come here late in the afternoon for the money shot of the fading sunlight highlighting the Three Sisters!!! Parking only for a few cars, so, pick your time carefully.

Eagle Point Lookout is a great place to view the Three Sisters without all the tourists.
Take a photo and enjoy the beautiful views.

What, another lookout? It's easy to get tired of climbing up and down to yet another lookout in the Blue Mountains. MANY look the same or similar and you only appreciate them when you leave the mountain scenery.

Eagle Hawk Lookout is a beautiful lookout near Scenic World in Katoomba.

It is a very convenient natural attraction because if travellers were visiting Scenic World they could then also reach Eagle Hawk Lookout with a five minute walk through the bush.

It is also one of the first stops on the 6.8 km Prince Henry Cliff Walk. For people who are pushed for time, or who doubt they have the fitness for the whole walk, this is a great destination.

As mentioned by other reviewers, this lookout is nowhere near as crowded as Echo Point or the Three Sisters.

I very highly recommend this lookout.

If you want to see the Three Sisters and the Megalong Valley below without the crowds, then head to the Eagle Hawk Lookout.

Point is near the road so does not require a long walk to get the amazing views.

Located just off Cliff Drive, limited parking for two vehicles and a very short, easy walk down to the lookout. Great view and infrequently visited except by those who know about it.

Forgotten by tourists and 10 times better than the other for wonderful pictures!!! A nice view of the three sisters without the big tourists groups.

I never get sick of all the lookouts around Katoomba area. I remember when I first came here many years ago and was suitably impressed by the view. Nothing has changed since then, except now I show my boy!

This is basically just a dangerous car park on a dangerous road with no footpaths. It gives a different perspective but is noisy from the road and Scenic World.
