Yellow Rock is a fairly small town adjacent to Winmalee. Yellow rock is just a short drive along Hawkesbury Road from Springwood and turn right into Singles Ridge Road.

Recently Yellow Rock has been involved with the 2013 bushfires. When high temperatures, low humidity and strong winds unleashed the firestorm on October 17th, being one of the towns to pay the highest toll in the aftermath of the bushfires, Yellow Rock stood little chance against flames roaring up from the valleys below.

Yellow Rock has since flourished, the community have come together and the friendships are stronger.
Yellow rock has a lot to offer with exceptional views over Yellow Rock Lookout. A terrific place to take a breather, the lookout offers lovely views of the Nepean River, along with the Western Sydney area and Cumberland Plain.

Yellow Rock Lookout is an ideal location for experienced abseilers. Take advantage of the picnic areas including a shelter and tables, listen to the sound of the bellbirds in the trees, and take your dog for a walk along the short bush track or just sit on one of the rocks to enjoy the sunshine, peace and tranquillity.
