Mount Portal Lookout - Blackheath
Mount Portal Lookout is six kilometres from the eastern entry gate of the Blue Mountains National Park. Situated on the edge of the escarpment the viewing platform offers excellent views of the Glenbrook Gorge and Nepean River and interpretation at the site tells the story of the distinct landform features of the Cumberland Plain on the eastern side of the river and around Penrith.
This is the only formal abseiling site in the lower Blue Mountains and in this part of the National Park.
Accessible at all times
