The drive up is a bit steep in places. The view is amazing, the lookouts are an easy walk. There are toilets and picnic areas. Close to Kiama and Jamberoo. Lots of bird life.

This viewpoint exceeded our expectations as there are actually three viewpoints accessible from the car park, a short walk apart facing in different directions. We would recommend the north view if you are short of time. This is a very scenic part of NSW and...More

This is one of Kiama’s premium lookout spots over the Illawarra. I go up there to soak in the view, reflect, pray, enjoy!!! I had the privilege of seeing a lyre bird scraping around for food right under my feet at this place. A must!!

A relaxing and enjoyable drive along the mountain road, taking in the lovely scenery. The lookout points gave magnificent views of the hills right up to the coast.We spotted a wild wombat and kangaroos grazing in the grass.

This viewing platform provides serene views over Jamberoo and Kiama toward Wollongong and up the coast toward Sydney. You can hear cows mooing as you stand soaking up the views. A must see for any visitor as its a 5min drive up Saddleback Mountain Rd

Wonderful site. All of the walks at the lookout are correctly labelled except Hoddles Track. This track definitely does not have disability access!

Stunning views over the local area. Picturesque drive up the hill through the farmlands. The plaque at the lookout gives excellent information of the outlook.
