Please note
  • Don’t forget your camera – the photo opportunities from the lookout are unbeatable on a clear day.
  • Road signage for Jamberoo lookout is quite easily missed – look carefully as you drive along Jamberoo Mountain Road.

Keep an eye out as you drive along Jamberoo Mountain Road – there’s a small sign alerting you to one of the most spectacular views on the south coast – it’s definitely worth the stop.

Jamberoo lookout is perched on the edge of the coastal escarpment, and its viewing platform offers a striking panorama over rolling hills and paddocks and out to the Pacific Ocean.

If you’re a keen photographer, Jamberoo lookout is an absolute must. On a clear day, you can see Kiama, Lake Illawarra and even Five Islands off the coast of Wollongong. Snap away and capture it all. When you are finished why not take a walk or cycle along Budderoo track or stop into Minnamurra Rainforest Centre.
