Hard track
Starting from the end of Foothills Road, Austinmer, this walk leads to the Sublime Point Lookout via the Gibson and Sublime Point tracks. Sublime Point Track is one of the iconic treks of the Illawarra escarpment and a challenging walk through the lush coastal rainforest to the plateau above with incredible scenic views. The walk starts along Gibson Track and then ascends sharply to the Sublime Point Lookout, through dense forests dotted with tree ferns and palms. The summit features a café, a lookout, picnic area and toilets, and is a popular spot for family picnics and birdwatching. This is a very steep and fairly narrow track, with a series of steel ladders to assist walkers up the jagged cliff lines near the top of the climb. The track is well maintained and clearly signposted. The steep climb is ideal for experienced bushwalkers, and the numerous stairs and ladders will undoubtedly give your legs a good workout. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
