Popped in and had a spectacular view over Bulli and the northern Beaches, prior to going to Panorama House for lunch. It was a great sunny day so the water looked turquoise and deep blue. Perfect day for taking in the Illawarra from up high.

Hi Chris, There are two options: 1. Via car on Old Princes Highway near Bulli Pass. OR 2. Climb from Foothills Road located near Austinmer Rail Station, Wollongong. Enjoy the view.
