Summary: An isolated, informal lookout just off Kings Tableland Road, Sunset Rock Lookout offers sweeping views over the Jamison Valley.

Not to be confused with Sunset Rock at Mount Victoria, Sunset Rock on Kings Tablelands is a lesser-known vantage point, which provides a sweeping view over the Jamison Valley. The unfenced rock platform has some interesting, windswept protrusions (like mini-pagoda formations) and as the name suggests, it’s a great spot in the late afternoon.

To the south are the cliffs of Kings Tablelands, and beyond that Kanangra Walls.

To the west you can see the entire length of Mount Solitary, and to the right of it Ruined Castle and the end of Narrow Neck.

Although it’s only a short walk along a trail to this isolated rock platform, it’s not too well known and a you’ll avoid the crowds of nearby Lincolns Rock.

Getting to Sunset Rock Lookout (Kings Tableland)

At the start of Kings Tableland Road (4.1km from the Great Western Highway and next to the old Queen Victoria Hospital), turn right onto Kedumba Valley Road. After 550m, look for a servcie trail on the right. Park here, and walk about 150m to the lookout at the edge of the cliff which is Sunset Rock Lookout.
