This lookout is a hidden gem, the views along the Illawarra coast are priceless. It’s accessible by car, but if it’s a lovely day, there’s also a walk up to it that climbs through the forest. It’s a gorgeous route, however it is quite steep...More

Worth a turn off from the highway to the lookout with nice views of the coast. There is a cafe up there but it only does breakfast and lunch, and then shuts by 3-ish which is disappointing if you turn up later. For the energetic,...More

Our overseas visitors thought the view from the lookout was amazing. There is plenty of parking available.

We started from Foothills road in the dark. The walk starts off easy enough but soon became a series of steps and stairs followed by ladders. Not the easiest of walks but when you get to the top the views are worth it! Really looking...More

Great spot for getting the best views of the coast - only takes a few minutes diversion from the freeway but the views will justify it.

Sublime point lookout is often missed by those travelling south to the Illawarra Region because it is off the freeway and the road signs are often missed at 110 km/h. It has to be one of the best coastal views of the Wollongong Region. Sitting...More
