This walk takes you to the dramatic views of Gladstone Lookout, past the Leura Golf Course. Gladstone Lookout has sweeping views of the many cliffs surrounding the Jamison Valley below, including the Kings Tableland. This is one of the less visited formal lookouts in the area, but still offers great views. Let us begin by acknowledging the Dharug & Gundungurra people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.

Track Notes
Turn by turn instructions & maps
Getting started
From the road into Fairmont Resort on Fairmont Place, this walk heads east along the asphalt road next to the resort. This soon goes off to the right and becomes a management trail. The walk passes a high ropes course (off to the right) and soon narrows to a bush track, passing a green building (off to the right) as the track goes beside the golf course. Soon, the track follows the edge of the golf course, past a sign saying 'Grand Cliff Top Walk', where the track heads into the bushland.....
