Lincoln’s Rock, Blue Mountains, New South Wales, Australia
This incredible lookout was only officially named ‘Lincoln’s Rock’ in 2013. Before that it went by a few different names: Flat Rock or Wedding Rock (lots of couples have wedding-day photos taken there) and even Honeymoon Rock.
It’s named after Australian mountaineer Lincoln Hall who lived in Wentworth Falls for two decades and who died tragically from asbestos-related illness in 2012. Hall famously survived a night out in the elements near the summit of Mount Everest at 8700m, and was pronounced dead before being found alive the next day by rescuers (he wrote the book Dead Lucky about the ordeal).
