Summary: The Faulconbridge Point Lookout is a large, unfenced rock platform at the end of Faulconbridge Ridge which provides sweeping views over the Grose Valley.

Getting to the Faulconbridge Point Lookout (also called the Grose River Lookout) involves a fairly long bushwalk – or mountain bike ride – out to the end of Faulconbridge Ridge, where there’s a large, unfenced rock platform.

There are 180-degree views from the end of the ridge over the Grose River, and the lower Grose Valley.

Looking to the east you can see the Cumberland Plain, beyond the foot of the Blue Mountains.

Getting to the Faulconbridge Point Lookout

The lookout is reached via the Faulconbridge Ridge Firetrail, which follows the top of the ridge from the end of Grose Road. It’s a fairly easy and not particularly interesting bushwalk – or you can ride a mountain bike. You can also follow a bushwalking track from the firetrail down to the Grose River.
