Pulpit Rock Lookout Walk

New South Wales

If you’ve got something to shout about, then head for Pulpit Rock lookout near Blackheath in Blue Mountains National Park. Jutting out on a dramatic blade of rock, you might be lost for words or end up singing the praises of the sweeping views of vast forested gorges and magnificent Grose Valley below.

Unpack the picnic basket and enjoy a remote lunch on this isolated pinnacle, far from the popular tourist spots. There are several lookouts from this prime position, affording an almost 360˚ panorama across the dramatic cliff lines to Mount Banks and distant mountains.

One of the best lookouts in the Blue Mountains. A good place for a photo op. If you're not afraid of heights taking the walk down the ladder to the viewing platform is a must.
