A hidden lookout
Olympian Lookout can be found hidden away down next to the Leuralla Public Gardens Amphitheatre, near Olympian Parade, Leura. The Olympian Lookout is profoundly a lookout that must be visited!



Alongside the white picket fence to the left, the walk to this spectacular Lookout begins. You head down a long set of concrete stairs to the intersection of the Prince Henry Cliff Walk at Olympian Rock, before arriving at the mighty fenced lookout.

The steep stairs walk is worth it!


Olympian Lookout is on a sloped, natural sandstone surface with a few steps cut to help improve access to the viewing platform. From here, you will truly be in awe with the magnificent views of the Jamison Valley and beyond.

Spectacular uninterrupted views of the Valley


The lookout is situated right on the edge of the cliff with panoramic views that steal your breath away. Mount Solitary- which is the 'back' of the mighty Three Sisters and Narrow Neck are both visible on the right, and Sublime Point on the left.



There is something absolutely special about Olympian Rock and lookout. It could possibly be the feeling it gives of being a world away from civilization or the feeling of walking on clouds as you walk down the steps where the clifftop drops away, leaving you with nothing but splendid views of the majestic lush forest of Jamison Valley and Mount Solitary. Whatever it is, it is such a magical spot that must be added to the bucket list of your Blue Mountain's itinerary!

View of the viewing platform at the Lookout


The lookout faces south with offerings of the best views of the sunrise and sunset, as well as spectacular views throughout the day and night.



Without doubt, there is a certain tranquillity here with the majestic mountains and valleys and just the sound of nature. You will feel like you are a million miles away from everyone.

The starting point of the walk to the Lookout


Notes:

The path is not wheelchair, pram or stroller accessible.
The lookout can also be accessed from Prince Henry Cliff Walk or Olympian Parade via a short walk.
If accessing the Lookout from Olympian Parade, do keep an eye out for the sign stating 'Olympian Lookout' as it can easily be missed.



There are steep stairs, which makes it not suitable for certain fitness levels or limited mobility.
It is a 30 minute walk from Gordon Falls Lookout or just under a minute drive.
The lookout also leads to Elysian Rock Lookout.
