ABOUT: A ledge that has stunning views across the U shaped Cedar Valley, Lake Burragorang in the distance, a back view of Mount Solitary & weathered rocks make fabulous foregrounds. The sun comes up from the left, creates wonderful rays across the mist & trees in the valley and skim lights up the edges of the Mount Solitary ridges – castle head and ruined castle can also be seen from the reverse angle.

PHOTO EQUIPMENT TO BRING: A solid tripod and if you are getting to the spot before sunrise, descent shoes & warm accessories. A 14mm-20mm gives good overall coverage of the valleys but some nice ridge layers can be had with a 35mm-50mm. Very long 200mm+ forLake Burragorang.

GETTING TO THE SPOT/S: Follow Glenraphael Dr (the Tarros Ladder) until the locked gate. Use the custom map below for specific location, but walk for about 20-25 mins on the easy fire track. Just before the track goes very steeply up to the right you will see two stakes and a trail going off to the left. Follow this for about 5 mins up a small hill, keep at this level on the right hand trail through a bushy 2 minute walk out to the obvious rocky platform.
