Mount Portal Lookout

 This walk is in the Glenbrook section of the Blue Mountains National Park.

Portal Waterhole is on a looped side track off the Mount Portal lookout road.

The Lower Blue Mountains begins here, as it rises abruptly on the western side of the Nepean River.

Mt. Portal Lookout

Mount Portal Lookout overlooks the Nepean River and the Cumberland Plain south of Penrith.
We walked from Glenbrook station, but the lookout can be reached by 4WD.

Tunnel View Lookout

Tunnel View Lookout is a great vantage point with views across to the main western rail line between Lapstone and Glenbrook and of Glenbrook Gorge below. The lookout is only a stroll from the road.

My thanks to our walk leader John M.


  1. That looks like a great walk for this time of year, when it's not raining. Perfect on a clear day for views of the Sydney basin.

  2. A fabulous walk but it looks a long way down in that last pic!

  3. Great shots form a great lookout. I am very fond of the Nepean River.

  4. Such stunning vistas. Wonderful photos, Kevin.
