Lincoln's Rock: A MUST See in the Blue Mountains
Updated: May 24, 2020
One of the most incredible things about Australia is the day trips you can take from each major city. Just outside of Sydney is home to the Blue Mountains! A vast terrain of Eucalyptus trees (or commonly known as gum trees) that create an evaporating mist which reflects with the sunlight causing a blueish hue. It really is an unbelievable sight. One of my FAVORITE lookouts in the Blue Mountains is Lincoln's Rock.
Located close to Wentworth Falls in the Blue Mountains is Lincoln's Rock. It's an incredible lookout with the most spectacular view. My favorite part is that there is no hike involved to see this.
You can easily drive to the Blue Mountains by taking the Pacific Highway. It is about an hour and a half away from the city center of Sydney.
Just before you reach Wentworth Falls, you will see a BROWN sign on the left side of the road that says KINGS TABLELAND. The street name is Tableland Rd. Take a left here and you should enter into a neighborhood setting. Take the third right onto Hordern Rd. Yes, it turns into a dirt road at the end of the street. Yes, you are going the right way! Once you've made it to the end of the street, take a right and you'll see a small parking lot to enter onto Lincoln's Rock. Here is also the pinpoint on Google Maps!
Grab a picnic and just watch the show that the Blue Mountains put on for Sunset! Seriously, one of the most insane sunsets I've ever seen!
PLEASE be careful on your visit to Lincoln's Rock. Although it is an incredible sight, there is no railing and a fairly large drop along the edge of the rock. Take caution of the wind as it is much stronger in the Blue Mountains also.
Lincoln's Rock is a great starting point to your day in the Blue Mountains too as it's one of the first lookout points to visit on your trip!
