ABOUT: Flat Top viewpoint is a great spot for high wilderness style shots. It looks towards Mount Hay, the ridges of the Grose and even down into the Hawkesbury in the far distance. It would be a great spot for night photography or wide open vista style shots showing expansive skies and wide open bush. There is a trig marker at the top too.

PHOTO EQUIPMENT TO BRING: An ultra wide for those big sky shots even semi fisheye 8-12 mm but a good long telephoto to compress long views of Mount Hay and also Mount Banks in the distance. Tripod for night or low light of course.

GETTING TO THE SPOT/S: Keep following Mount Hay Rd until you pass the Pinnacles car park and continue around a ridge and you will see, as the road bends around to the right and on an open ridge, a small car spot on the left. The walk to the viewpoint is about 10 mins, marked on the opposite side to the car park. About 200m further down Mount Hay Rd is an interesting rock feature and ledge that the road precariously continues on, worth stopping and exploring here.
