Located along the escarpment south of Mt Piddington in Mount Victoria, Pulpit Rock Lookout in Mount Victoria offers some sweeping views over the Kanimbla Valley (not to be confused with the much busier Pulpit Rock Lookout at Blackheath). To the south are the cliffs around Mount Blackheath.
To the south-west, the Kanimbla Valley stretches out into the distance.
The lookout is not well known and doesn’t get too busy, making it a great spot to enjoy the views with some solitude or to catch the sunset from the rock outcrop.
A few bushwalks start here; if you take the track that descends below the cliff-line you’ll soon reach another informal lookout that has some equally good views.
Bushwalks from Pulpit Rock
The lookout is the starting point for a few bushwalking tracks through the Piddington Reserve, including:
- Bushrangers Cave – 1km return
- Ross Cave – 1.5km return
- Mount Piddington – 1.5km one-way
- Pulpit Rock and Bushrangers Cave Loop – 3.5km loop
Getting to Pulpit Rock in Mount Victoria
It’s easy to reach the lookout, which is at the end of Kanimbla Valley Road in Mount Victoria. It’s best to park at the end of the sealed road (it turns into a firetrail which you can drive down in a high-clearance 4WD), and walk about 50m to the start of the short walking track.
