What you need to know

Hassan's Wall is the highest lookout in the Blue Mountains range available to the public and is wheelchair accessible. Situated on the edge of the Blue Mountains and the Central Tablelands, the lookout offers unmatched views of both countryside and mountains, with sheer cliffs on either side to complete the spectacle. The aspect from Hassan’s Wall includes an outlook that covers the western edge of the Blue Mountains and further on to Kanangra Walls to the south. Gazing down also provides a perspective on the Great Western Highway winding its way far below, which offers an extra sense of just how high up the vantage point is.

The lookout has had recent improvements made to its boardwalks and lookout railings, which are now decked out with improved fencing for safety due to some previous incidents, and those with a fear of heights can still fully appreciate the spectacle while having an extra dose of reassurance. Hassan’s Wall Lookout can be easily accessed from Lithgow - visitors can either take a short, 5 minute drive from the town or enjoy a great walk or ride up to the top - via the aptly-named Hassan’s Wall Road. It’s equipped with picnic shelters, too, so enjoying a late lunch and then sticking around for a gorgeous sunset comes highly recommended.

Lithgow is the first true country town west of Sydney and is rich in coal mining history. The main street offer many cafes to enjoy a meal or a coffee.
