Please note
  • Remember to bring your binoculars if you want to birdwatch.
  • Check the weather before you set out and ensure you're well prepared. Weather can be unpredictable and the road to Pulpit Rock lookout can become boggy when it rains.

If you’ve got something to shout about, then head for Pulpit Rock lookout near Blackheath in Blue Mountains National Park. Jutting out on a dramatic blade of rock, you might be lost for words or end up singing the praises of the sweeping views of vast forested gorges and magnificent Grose Valley below.

Unpack the picnic basket and enjoy a remote lunch on this isolated pinnacle, far from the popular tourist spots. There are several lookouts from this prime position, affording an almost 360˚ panorama across the dramatic cliff lines to Mount Banks and distant mountains.

The lookout is a great pit stop on a mountain biking tour or starting point for Pulpit walking track along the cliff tops to Govetts Leap lookout. For a range of walks to suit everyone, check out the nearby Blue Mountains Heritage Centre.
