Hargraves Lookout

A pleasant drive to the western end of Shipley Plateau passing local apple orchards will bring you to Hargraves Lookout and provide magnificent views over the rural Megalong Valley.

At the very end of Shipley Plateau is Mount Blackheath, a popular hang-gliding site from a purpose built ram near the lookout at 1076 metres. If the conditions are right gliders soar over the Kanimbla Valley and sometimes can reach Bathurst.
