Pearsons Lookout is located on the eastern side of the Castlereagh Highway just south of Capertee. It is at the summit if a fairly steep hill with unbroken white lines extending several hundred metres in both directions. It is therefore much more easily accessed when travelling south, but if you are north bound the effort to turn at the end of the continuous line and drive back is well worth while.

A plaque at the lookout point provides directions and distances to several towns and cities as well as naming the mountain ranges, of which there are many. Notably the directions allow you to identify the location of historic areas such as Glen Davis and Newnes, both notable for their shale oil production during WWII.

Unfortunately we were there on a hazy day, as you will see from the photos.
