You’ll be pitching your tent on a prime spot at Perrys lookdown campground on the western edge of Blue Mountains National Park. Take in the inspiring views of the famous Blue Gum Forest from Perrys lookdown as you whisper a thank you to the bushwalkers of the 1930s. They bought and reclaimed this magnificent stand of towering eucalypts for future generations.

Gaze across the heath-covered plateaus to the huge sandstone walls of Mount Banks rising majestically from the dense forests below. Be sure to bring your binoculars for a closer view of the cliffs as well as birdlife including the colourful king parrots and crimson rosellas.

If you’re keen to get down to Blue Gum Forest in the Grose Valley, there’s the nearby challenging Perrys lookdown to Blue Gum Forest walking track.
