The Best Blue Mountains Walks: Pulpit Rock

 Blackheath Blue Mountains Walks

{Best Blue Mountains Walks: the Pulpit Rock Track (3 hours return): Begin at Govetts Leap car park on the outskirts of Blackheath, just 15 minutes along the Great Western Highway from Katoomba. Can you spot the pulpit?!}

On Saturday morning Mr. Spring and I got up at 5am for a day’s escape to the Blue Mountains. I’ve already documented my new found love of the area here and here but today I want to share the track that’s become my fast favourite. I promise it ticks every bush walk box – including wrapping up in plenty of time for a fireside lunch back in town. It was well worth dragging ourselves out of Sydney so early since we had the entire path – and all its lookouts – completely to ourselves. As someone who does sometimes feel hemmed in by city life there’s no better remedy than getting amongst this… creeks, waterfalls, caves, a little mud, a lot of wind, and stunning, soaring views.

Such a beautiful spot!! I don’t think I’ve been on that walk, though it was so many years ago when I was there. I do remember walking to a lookout and dropping my treasured Oakley Frogskin glasses over the edge – that tells you how long ago it was, mid 90′s. Yes, managed to retirieve them :)
You photos are stunning :)

Wow! I’ve never been to Australia, but after following yours and other amazing blogs from down under, it’s definitely on my to-do list! What fantastic scenery and that waterfall is fab! We made an escape from London’s madness this weekend down to the south coast – just posted some pix on my blog too : )
