A must-stop Lookout in the mighty Blue Mountains
Nestled between the iconic Three Sisters and The Giant Stairway in the stunning World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains, Spooners Lookout calls home.

Spooners Lookout is around a 200-metre walk from the Visitor's Information Centre and is wheelchair friendly. You pass through an archway and be greeted to soaring eucalypt forest, fresh mountain air and sounds of bird calls. If you are lucky, you might spot the superb lyrebird and Crimson Rosellas.

The view from the lookout is unforgettable, especially at sunrise and sunset. It is easy to spend hours just at this lookout!

Spooners Lookout's history:

Spooners Lookout was named after Eric Sydney Spooner (1891-1952) who was an Australian politician. Spooner played a significant part in Katoomba and Leura history.

In 1938, he officially opened the Prince Henry Cliff Walk, Katoomba. In 2014 the walking path to the lookout was upgraded with new paving and broader track.

Spooners Lookout is the best lookout to see the Three Sisters and the majestic Jamison Valley without crowds. It provides excellent views straight down the valley and beyond.

Be sure to add this lookout to your Blue Mountains itinerary!
