What to expect
There are no national park entry fees or parking fees so visiting Lincolns Rock is completely free. We also couldn’t believe how close the carpark was to the lookout area. A short walk will lead you to a huge flat rock area. Here you’ll have panoramic views overlooking the Blue Mountains. Lincolns Rock Blue Mountains is an unfenced area and there have been some incidents so be careful around the cliff edge.
If you look below, you’ll even find the remains of old cars and motorcycles. You’ll also notice that people carve their names and dates into the rock surface. We even saw a couple that had been coming back for over 17 consecutive years which we though was pretty cool!
Lincolns Rock is a great spot to watch the sun set over the valley or if you want to have the whole place to yourself, be sure to get there early for sunrise. We went at midday and didn’t see as many people as we expected. There are a few tour buses that turn up every now and then but they only stay around for a few minutes before they leave.
