Kings Tableland is a ridge in the state of New South Wales, Australia in the City of Blue Mountains. It extends southwards from Wentworth Falls and is the eastern boundary of the Jamison Valley. At the southern end is McMahon's Lookout, commanding spectacular view over Lake Burragorang. There are spectacular views from several points along the ridge, accessed via paths breaking off the main fire trail. The ridgetop fire trail itself is accessible to 4WD and AWD vehicles in good weather conditions, and is a popular MTB route.

Along the way is Battleship Tops,[1] an aboriginal meeting place where ochre paintings could be seen, though these have been in large part obliterated by vandalism. A 2007 survey of the area found four rock shelters with paintings and several other sites.[2]
