HANGING ROCK LOOKOUT: THE EXPERIENCE
As told by Jackie Te-Aroha
This is definitely the town hero when it comes to lookouts. It’s conveniently situated 5 minutes form the center of Nowra and overlooks the Shoalhaven river a mighty 46 meters above. Whats even better is that you can drive right up to this bad boy and enjoy the views from the comfort of your own vehicle if getting out to close to the edge isn’t your thing. I bet you know which one we chose.
Upon arrival it’s quite obvious that this lookout received its name from its formation. However, the over hanging part of is fenced off for safety. But as we.all know, fences don’t always keep everything out.We arrived just before sunset and had planned to set up a time lapse, sit back and watch the sky change colours from beind the fence. But as the sun was nearing the horizon there was no way Zade and I could keep away.
Although it’s a popular spot. I would definitely recommend a quick stop in if your just passing through especially if it’s around sunset because this beauty faces west which means you’ll get a beautiful glow over the river. Hanging Rock is also located along the Ben’s Walk Circuit for all the fit guys that like to couple their exercise routines with a pretty view.
