Gap Bluff Lookout is a 900m, grade 4 Return hike located in  New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 30 mins to complete.


This walk explores the coastal cliffs near The Gap on Sydney’s South Head. The main focal point for this walk is the view from the rocky bluff. The cliff makes for very spectacular scenery and the views extend from North Head along the coast and even peer across the harbour to the city. This walk starts from Watsons Bay and follows a well used footpath all the way. There is much history in the area and the couple of side trips described in this walk open up some more places to explore.
