Summary: A fairly quiet and infrequently visited lookout, Therabulat Lookout provides some nice views over the Megalong Valley.

One of the less-visited Katoomba lookouts, the fenced Therabulat Lookout provides a view towards Megalong Valley, framed by two cliffs. The lookout is named after one of the tribes or mobs of the Gundungurra people, the traditional custodians of the land; the Therabulat occupied the middle Coxs River area. The lookout is also called Dhurabulla, which is also an indigenous name.

To the left is Boar Head.

To the right is Megalong Head, behind an unnamed cliff.

Getting to Therabulat Lookout

Follow Cliff Track (also called the Bonnie Doon Trail) from the end of Stuarts Road in Katoomba, and look for a track on the left after 800m (it may be marked by a cairn). There is very limited parking here, so a better option is to park on Narrow Neck Road, at the intersection with Stuarts Road. You can combine Therabulat Lookout and Norths Lookout for a longer walk – or stop at both lookouts on the more challenging half-day Devils Hole loop walk.

The start of the walk is a 2.5km walk or drive from Katoomba Station. (An alternate route is via a trail from the Great Western Highway, which starts just south of the Explorers Tree – this is about 2.5km return,)
