Wow! The views from this lookout are amazing. It really is a must see and will take our next overseas visitors up to see Wollongong at its best. Lunch at Mt Kembla pub made it a great Sunday day out.

We went to the boy scout camp .Mrs Leanne was so helpful and kind. She gave us excellent tour of the place and being solo visitors learnt a lot of the place from her. She was amazing.

Well worth a visit for the view along the coast and over Wollongong. There is still no cafe, unless it is in the shipping containers on site. We where there on a Sunday morning and it was not open.
