  • Off the tourist track so generally quieter than the look outs at Katoomba but can be accessed via a good pathway through Popes Glen. Accessible by car too with good parking close by.  more »
  • Worth a visit, beautiful view. Easy to get to if you stay in Blackheath. It fogs up on rainy days so you won’t really see anything.  more »
  • Yet another of the Blue Mountains' lookouts with spectacular views. The whole area is glorious and we never get tired of looking at It. There are various walking tracks radiating away from the lookout...  more »

  • The views are spectacular. Also it's not packed with people like echo point. There is also a wheel chair/pram accessible walk.
  • Fantastic view of the Pulpit Rock and the valley. There are a number of waterfalls to enjoy too. The walk down is a little steep and can be slippery so make sure you wear a proper hiking boots.
  • This place is just amazing. People will regret of NOT visiting this lookout when visiting Blue Mountains. I've been there many times to watch sunrise, sunset and also watch the amazing milky way during clear night when there were no moon. MUST-VISIT PLACE for everyone!
  • We go for two separate day, one day with rain, the other day is fine. It has total different feel, great place to visit. choose a fine day walking it's track
  • A great view overlooking the valley. If you look to the right side of the valley you can see the waterfall.
