Pulpit Rock Lookout, Blue Mountains National Park

4.8
#3 of 19 in Wildlife in Blue Mountains
Dramatically jutting out from an isolated pinnacle, Pulpit Rock Lookout offers sweeping views across cliff edges, forested gorges, and the scenic Grose Valley below. Far removed from the crowded tourist spots in Blue Mountains National Park, the lookout also serves as a great pit stop on a hiking or mountain biking tour, as well as a picnic spot--featuring a rustic hut and few outdoor tables near the parking. Avid bird-watchers should bring a pair of binoculars.

  • Wow it's beautiful. Not even 15min down to the pulpit rock lookout from the carpark. I went on my bike and with bike gear on and I managed the walk fine. The lookout is amazing .
  • Beautiful scenery! Lots of steps to climb! Especially on way back up hill ! If you are going don't go alone as very secluded area! No one around ! Otherwise the scenery is breath taking!
