Summary: A small rock outcrop, Fort Rock in Blackheath offers some pretty impressive views over the Megalong Valley and Kanimbla Valley, and the nearby cliffs.

A track was first constructed to Fort Rock, which would have at the time been an isolated rock formation, in 1936. The small rock outcrop is now a relatively popular lookout, which offers 360-degree views. To the west is a stunning view over the Megalong Valley and Kanimbla Valley.

To the north are the cliffs above the Colliers Causeway.

To the south is the Walls Ledge; unfortunately the power poles detract a little from the otherwise rugged bushland.

Getting to Fort Rock

The lookout is reached from the end of Bundarra Street in Blackheath, which is 650m from Blackheath station. If you’re doing the longer Porters Pass and Colliers Causeway loop walk, you’ll pass the lookout.
