Hargraves LO

ABOUT: Hargraves Lookout is at the end of a long ridge that sits in the middle of the Kanimbla/Megalong Valleys. On the left are views to Medlow Bath and you can see the Hydro Majestic perched on the ridge, ahead you look towards Katoomba and on the right into the rural farms of the Kanimbla. A trail leads you right onto the tip of the ridge for some great foreground opps.

PHOTO EQUIPMENT TO BRING: A mix of lenses but moderate wide best to capture some of the ridge your own and distance cliffs. A long lens for isolating interesting rocks and buildings to the left. The sun sets on your right and with clouds and a tripod you can capture some stunning big sky sets.

GETTING TO THE SPOT/S: It is a good 20-25 min drive from Blackheath (you turn off GWH across the train tracks) and well signposted after that.
