For a spectacular view over the beautiful green rolling hills & coastline up to port Kembla down to Gerringong (or even further), this lookout is fantastic & worth the trip up the hill.

This looked out is situated along a beautiful drive through Kiama. Once at the lookout there are 3 pathways, public toilets and a picnic table. The reserve is clean and well maintained and the lookout is worth a quick visit.

The views are amazing, it is really worth the drive up there, you might miss the turn off and there isn't much parking but there are three amazing lookouts that give amazing views.

The views of the area on a clear day is amazing. If its not too windy, you can hear the car clubs in the distance going on their drive days and hear all the natural beauty.

This place is just fantastic and not many people have discovered how lovely it is. Great to sit at the top with a wine and cheese platter and watch the sun set.

Driving up the Saddleback is an experience in it's self. Wonderful rural views as well as the coastal expanse. You can make a circular drive by returning via Fountaindale road and a detour into the village of Jamberoo.

Sadly 2 of the lookouts were overgrown so a view was hard to see. Lookout A was the best of the 3 and probably the only one worth looking at. The drive up however was pretty spectacular and well worth it.

No buses. It's worth the cost of renting a car to explore the area! It's beautiful.
