ABOUT: To the west side of Narrow Neck on cliif drive and close to Cahill’s Lookout are several hidden, but easy access walks out to the rocks around Boar’s Head Rock – a fantastic foreground overlooking the Megalong Valley with Narrow Neck stretching out on the left separating Jamison from Megalong. The main lookout here is  the one out to Boars Head rock (looks like a horses or dragons head from this side) with upraded path and steps a few years ago. When you get to the bottom make a left to some lovely eroded rock foregrounds

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 on Narrowneck on the left or interesting shapes up and down the ridge.

GETTING TO THE SPOT/S: Park on the dirt area just before Cahill’s tourist parking and look for the obvious trail marked now into the bush – used to be a hidden trail about 50m after the steel railing finishes (there is a couple of other trails through the bush here but these are not ‘manicured’ like the climber focused Boars Head (Dirty Rotten Pig) track. It’s an easy 3 minute walk down to the rocky edge – be careful though on cliff edges. See lookout map below.
