Pulpit Rock Lookout, Blue Mountains National Park

Lookout · Tourist Spot
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.

  • We drove all the way up/out there from Katoomba only to find the road into it was closed. Continued further on into Anvil Rock lookout, which itself was quite speccy.  more »
  • This would be my favoutite of the 3 lookouts along this short stretch of road. The "Pulpit" is a nice foreground to a commanding view over the valley. Easy parking and access, well signposted  more »
  • 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!
