Soon the track comes to a three-way intersection at the unsignposted Breakfast Point Lookout.

Breakfast Point Lookout Alt = 831 m
Breakfast Point Lookout is on the Overcliff Walk, west of Den Fenella Creek. The lookout has a short stone wall and great views across the Jamison Valley.

Soon after passing a rock wall (on the left), the track goes through a muddy section and continues, passing some more large boulders. Soon the track passes another great rock wall (on the left) with fantastic valley views and an old wire fence. The walk then crosses a small metal bridge and comes to an overhang with a constructed stone wall.
From this overhang, the walk continues around the valley to soon come to a fenced (unnamed) lookout with great views. From the lookout, this walk heads back into the bush, across a small metal bridge and then soon comes to a three-way intersection with 'Princes Rock' track on the left (and a sign pointing back to the 'Valley of the Waters').

After the overhang, the walk heads down some steps, turns left and comes to an intersection (with a track on the right) at the start of another large overhang. (The lower right-hand track heads down to Eagles Nest Lookout.)
From the intersection, this walk heads under the overhang (keeping the rock face on the left). At the other end of the overhang, the track turns left and then passes along another rock wall before coming to a large dead tree and some great valley views.
From this view, keeping the rock face on the left, this walk heads under three significant and low overhangs (be sure to duck), each with wide sweeping right-hand bends. The last overhang has timber blocks on the floor. Soon after the last overhang, the track comes to a four-way intersection, with 'Fletchers Lookout' a short distance to the right.
