“Best lookout on the Blue mountains”
Reviewed April 16, 2013

Hassans Walls has the highest vantage point of any of the lookouts in the mountains. Spectacular views to Hartley and further east and to Kanangra Walls in the west. You can also see to Mt Canobolas at Orange on a clear day. You will usually have the place to yourself to drink it all in. OR, you can head to Blackheath with Jo R and trip over the crowds to one of the inferior lookouts up there.

“Great view... shame about the lookout”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

Great view of the Hartley valley and escarpment of the Blue Mountains however the lookout itself is not in the greatest condition. Better views can be found in Blackheath and Katoomba.

“One of Lithgow's best kept secrets”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

Hassans Walls lookout is one of the most panoramic vantage points on the Blue Mountains plateau. Located on a large sandstone promontory the look out has incredible views east over the Hartley Valley to the Darling Causeway, south-east into the Kanimbla Valley, south towards Hampton and south-west over the vast granite hills of the Great Dividing Range. From here visitors look down on the point at which Blaxland, Lawson and Wentworth finished their Blue Mountains crossing in 1813. Early morning and sunset are favourite times of day to visit this magical place. We always avoid the picnic shelters and head straight down the track to the rock shelf. There are no safety barriers so little ones need to be kept under control but the place is pure magic. There are few greater delights than scoffing fish and chips up here as the sun sets and the evening settles on the Hartley Valley.

The exposed location of the lookout means that visitors must be prepared for cold winds in winter!
