We did the trek around the mountain to Pulpit rock lookout. It is around 6km in length and took us about 2.5-3 hours return. If you don’t want to do the trek there is a car park right at Pulpit rock so you can check...More

At Blackheath in the Blue Mountains, you can park Govette Leap carpark and there is a short easy 400m walk to the lookout. However, you should walk the Pulpit Rock Track and go to the Pulpit Rock, a great spot for photos. The Track is...More

It is a little bit of a drive out to the lookout, but well worth the time. We did laugh at the sign that rated the walk out to it as "easy" when it was completely steps all the way down. It was wonderful to...More
