Hanging Rock is a unique rock formation located in the Blue Mountains that attracts visitors from all over the world. The rock juts out from the escarpment and offers breathtaking views of the valley below. It's a popular spot for adventurers and adrenaline junkies, as it's one of the most popular spots for base jumping in Australia.
If you're not up for the thrill of base jumping, you can still enjoy the stunning views from the Hanging Rock Lookout. The lookout is perched on the edge of the escarpment and offers panoramic views of the Grose Valley, with the river below snaking through the valley floor.
Hanging Rock is a short drive from the nearby town of Blackheath. Just north of the town take a right onto Ridgwell Road which turns into Burramoko Trail. The rock formation is in the Grose Valley and can be accessed via a hiking trail from the car park. It's important to note that the trail to Hanging Rock can be challenging for some visitors, so be sure to wear appropriate footwear and bring plenty of water. Be careful near the edge!
