Discover an ‘off the beaten track’ lookout
Nestled up in the mountains of picturesque Kiama, a wondrous "off the beaten track" lookout lies. The spectacular and awe-inspiring Saddleback Mountain Lookout can be found here with offerings that make any nature photographer's dream come true!

Endless awe-inspiring views can be seen from Saddleback Mountain Lookout...

Saddleback Mountain Lookout is a scenic winding drive that passes well-manicured farms, valleys and lush forests. It is a 10-minute drive from the iconic Kiama Blowhole and the coast of Kiama.

The lookout sits on the Saddleback Mountain with a rising about 600-metres above sea level on the Illawarra escarpment and offers panoramic 360-degree views from Cronulla to Jervis Bay as well as views of Noorinan Mountain which sits 662-metres above sea level, Barron Grounds Plateau on the west and south to Coolangatta Mountain and Pigeon House Mountain to Ulladulla.

From the carpark, it is a short well-maintained paved walk to the wooden deck, where views awaken your senses at first approach.

Saddleback Mountain Lookout is also home to Rotary Lookout, where lush forests can be discovered and views of the backside of the mountains can be seen from here.

The views from Rotary Lookout...

There is Hoddles Track bushwalk which is located near Rotary Lookout. The track is 6.3km (2:37hr) return with a 389-metre climb. The walk leads to Barron Grounds Nature Reserve, passing Saddleback Mountain Summit, Saddleback Mountain Firetrail, Kiama Municipal Council, Jamberoo, Illawarra, Hoddles Road, Foxground and finally to Barron Grounds.

It is absolutely beautiful to be at this lookout. At most times you will notice that you are all alone in silence reflecting on the beauty that is presented to you!

There is a car park located on site and toilet facilities.
