The sealed track to Python Rock has even grades, suitable for older people and those confined to wheelchairs. The booyongs and figs near the West Cliff turn off are impressive as are the large New England Blackbutt as you enter the open forest for the first time. The view from Python Rock overlooks Castle Crag to the Lost World with Mount Throakban on the left and Moran's Falls. You can proceed up the hill from the lookout on a tough track and turn left for West Cliff.

Getting there

The Python Rock track starts on the road, 800m before the National Park Information Centre at Green Mountains.

Route/Trail notes

The track is well marked and fully maintained. It passes through both rainforest and open eucalypt forest.


Great views over Castle Crag and down to Morans, over to Lost world and southern lamington!

Stunning views at the end make this very worthwhile. Not a lot of uphill made the kids happy. Paired this with Moran's falls to make a great morning.

Another great visit. Check out the Pat's Bluff track while you're here (adds an extra 20min to the walk).

An amazing lookout. Each time I go to O'Reilly's I'm always impressed.
