Sublime Point Lookout

New South Wales

“It was misty the day we went, but we saw Mount Solitary rising like an island above the clouds. It was magical. The kids thought it was a fairy castle.”

It will feel like you’re on the edge of the world as the views go on forever at Sublime Point lookout – Leura, in Blue Mountains National Park. Offering sensational scenic views of the Jamison Valley, it’s a popular spot for picnicking and birdwatching with families. The more adventurous know it as a haven for rock climbing.

Following an easy track, look for gang-gangs and cockatoos feeding in the casuarinas during summer. You’ll cross a bridge over a dramatic ravine before arriving at the lookout platform.

Gaze across the scenic valley views and soak up the unending wilderness. You’ll get a different viewpoint on Katoomba and the extended family of The Three Sisters. On a misty morning, Mount Solitary rising out of the clouds is a magnificent sight.

The sheer cliffs attract experienced rock climbers, who are often seen tackling climbs such as ‘Hells Bells’ and ‘Sweet Dreams’.

Beautiful lookout! Just as good as Echo Point, but without the crowds. You are still able to see the Three Sisters from this lookout.

Nice easy walk but not flat. You walk down to the lookout and then you walk back up. Most of the walk is sealed though before you reach stairs and then the bridge. Great views.

I went here a few times over a couple of days for sunrise and particularly sunset. Magic!

Flat, easy and short. Amazing views. Would be a nice place for a sunrise or sunset. Must be a good place for rock climbing as there were a few climbers getting prepared in the car park.
