Lincoln's Rock (Flat Rock), Blue Mountains, NSW (image heavy)

A favourite tourist's & local's spot to stop at in the Blue Mountains is Lincoln's Rock (formerly known as Flat Rock) located on the north western part on the Kings Tableland (south east of Wentworth Falls town centre).

We were checking out possible settings for our daughter's wedding photos (the one taking the photos with my Stylus 1) & so, here are some photos of this place that is known as a flat rock (more or less).

1) The view is to the Jamison Valley with Mount Solitary in the middle.


2)


3) Looking south over the flat rock where the tourists do their thing!


4) Looking north from the middle of Flat Rock (& the other tourists)


5)


6) And those that just have to look over the edge. The cliff is further out from this position, but it would definitely hurt falling from here anyhow.


7) And now looking south from the northern end of the rock


8) A lovely Isopogon growing there & Sublime Point in view to the upper right (with the next ridge barely visible that has the Three Sisters on the end of it).


9) Also a nice specimen of the Flannel Flower growing here too.


10) But, if you're curious & go walking a little further southwards along the rock it is possible to go down & someone has made a small cave their home in the past (with more photos in the Landscape gallery).


11) Yep, that's us! You can see the cave home is further back along the little track & the rough weathering of the rock face above.


12) This is directly above the cave house & looking towards Leura & the ridge leading to Sublime Point.


13) And the view to Sublime Point from that standing point.


14) The crop of the above just shows the Three Sisters hiding behind Sublime Point.


All these were taken on the Olympus Stylus 1

I hope you liked these views.
