Mount Blackheath Lookout

Travel along Shipley Plateau through a mix of bush (spot the waratahs in Spring), small farms and orchards - at the end you will reach Mount Blackheath Lookout with views to the north and west to the Great Dividing Range over the Kanimbla Valley.

At 1,076 metres it is the perfect place to relax and watch the sun go down after a strenuous bike ride or when the weather is right you might be fortunate to see colourful hang gliders and parasails riding the thermals after launching from this popular site. There are dirt sections along Shipley Plateau.
