Saddleback Mountain

Soak up the views

This short drive up the escarpment is a great way to get your bearings. There are numerous ‘insta-worthy’ photos along the way with the historic dry stone walls, dairy cows and cabbage trees coming in and out of view. At the top enjoy panoramic views from Cronulla in the north to Milton in the south from different viewing platforms. Sweeping views of blue, green and everything in between will leave you wanting to explore more.
