Overlooking the gigantic Megalong Valley, Cahill's Lookout is one of the most impressive lookouts in the Blue Mountains, but without the big tourist crowds. Quietly tucked away along the westernmost point of Cliff Drive, the lookout offers breathtaking views of the valley, Megalong Head, Boars Head Rock and the Narrow Neck Peninsula. A short but scenic 500m walking track beings visitors to this beautiful lookout, which consists of one large viewing platform and two smaller ones on each side. The walk also passes the Boars Head Lookout, from where you can can enjoy views of a unique rock formation that resembles, you guessed it, a boar's head. And it actually does, with a bit of healthy imagination. There are two things that make the Cahill's Lookout unique compared to most other lookout points in the area. Firstly, despite the fact that this lookout is one of the prettiest lookout points in the Blue Mountains, the big crowds haven't yet discovered this magnificent spot. Which is great, because it allows visitors to really enjoy the serenity of the area. Secondly, unlike lookouts such as Echo Point and Lincoln's Rock that overlook the Jamison Valley, Cahill's Lookout faces the Megalong Valley, which provides a somewhat different scenery. The Narrow Neck Peninsula, clearly visible from the viewing platform, is the plateau in the middle that divides the two large valleys.
