  • The drive to the lookout is about 20 minutes from Terrey Hills with a $12 entry fee most days. Views are some of the best in Sydney. Can see all of Broken Bay, Barrenjoey Lighthouse & Palm Beach. Walk...  more »

  • ABSOULTELY AMAZING! Visitors have to go here, it's an experience you won't regret going on. Great for families as there are flat areas of the lookout. If you're wanting to go on a bit of a hike there is a steep walkway down to the beach - amazing views and relaxing picnic area at the bottom if you're down to get your feet sandy! Amazing photography opportunities too, especially down at the beach.
  • Super lookout. Plenty of walking trails. Do carry your water and snacks as there's nothing much nearby. Parking shouldn't be a problem as well. With the walking trails you can easily look at spending 2-4 hours here.
