Blackheath Lookouts Driving Route

Natural Attractions

For some of the most awe-inspiring mountain, valley and waterfall views in the state, you can’t miss this driving route, taking in an amazing cluster of Blackheath lookouts. A brilliant introduction to the spectacular western region of Blue Mountains National Park, it’s a hassle-free driving tour for keen photography buffs and visitors of all ages.

From Anvil Rock lookout and Wind Eroded Cave, you can gaze across to Grosse Gorge and Mount Banks, while Perrys lookdown offers impressive views of Mount Hay. At accessible Govetts Leap, admire the tallest single drop waterfall in the park, while Evans lookout offers big valley views.

On the western side of Blackheath, Hargraves and Mount Blackheath lookouts offer extensive views from Shipley Plateau. You might even see hang gliders gracefully surfing the skies on the westerlies.

Choose your spot to unpack the picnic hamper and enjoy a relaxing lunch with million dollar views from any one of the vantage points. For more information, drop into Blue Mountains Heritage Centre.
