The track to Python Rock has even grades, suitable for older people and young children. 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.

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