Braceys Lookout

ABOUT: Bracey’s Lookout is really a city lookout as it faces the eastern end of Lithgow and the State Mine Hills behind. It is shrouded by trees so hard to get a totally clear view, but it is fantastic in the late afternoon light and early evening when the shapes are more defined and the city lights come on.

PHOTO EQUIPMENT TO BRING: A sturdy tripod and consider doing a full panorama vs anything squarer. A 100mm would be good for spotting part city and part distant hills. Graduate filters to keep the sky under control.

GETTING TO THE SPOT/S: You can access the lookout either a short drive out of Lithgow or halfway up the dirt track between Browns Gap Rd and Hassan’s Walls make a right onto the signposted track and it is about a 10 min drive.
