Rocktype Sandstone (hard)
Altitude 308m a.s.l
Five minute access, accessible by 2 Wheel Drive and in a quiet wilderness setting, the Hylands is a sandstone cliff comprising 3 sections, the north-western and south-western cliffs and the "middle ground" area in between. The rock quality varies from loose flaky scabs and conglomerate, to slightly sandy, to clean and compact. The south-western side has continuous vertical walls up to 30m high, whereas the northwestern side is more broken up but has some interesting short walls, prows, corners, and ledges. The cliffline on which Hylands is situated is extensive and there is the potential for further development, both at Hylands, and further along the cliffline (Utopia Crag). There may also be some bouldering potential.
Hylands Lookout is on Deans Gap Road located off Braidwood road about south-west of Nowra. From Nowra, take the Braidwood Road past the air force base, continuing along the newly sealed road. Around 20 klms from Nowra a major intersection will appear with Turpentine Road joining from the left. 50 metres past this intersection, is a dirt road on the right with some chunky blue-metal gravel at the start. This is Deans Gap Road and is marked as such on many maps.
From Canberra, Deans Gap Road is about 100m on the left past the first
