ABOUT: To the south of Narrow Neck and very close to Cahill’s Lookout are several hidden, but easy access walks out to the rocks around Boar’s Head Rock, with a fantastic foreground overlooking the Megalong Valley. This one is on the south side of Boars Head rock (looks like a horses or dragons head from this side), but better downward views into the valley and great with mist around.

PHOTO EQUIPMENT TO BRING: Tripod essential as the sun goes down directly opposite, so grads or bracket blends critical. A 16-35mm will give good coverage, but panorama stitching is tempting. A 100mm good for spotting Narrowneck on the left or interesting shapes up and down the ridge.

GETTING TO THE SPOT/S: Park at Cahill’s and walk south on Cliff Drive about 50m, look for the hidden trail just after the steel railing finishes. It’s an easy 3 minute walk out to the rocky edge – be careful though on cliff edges. See lookout map below.
