Location: Grose Vale
Get Google Map Directions >>

Vale of Avoca lookout peers into the belly of the lower Grose Valley, offering a glimpse of the hostile terrain faced by some of the early European explorers. This is a particularly mountainous viewpoint - the lookout hang in the middle of the valley, surrounded by an amphitheatre of complex ridges climbing up on all sides. It is thought that when explorers came to this very location, upon seeing what lay before them, quickly sought a more easier route around. Its no wonder that the area beyond these mountains was named “The Devils Wilderness”.

Below the lookout the Grose River makes it’s final run through the mountain before meeting the Nepean river down in the lowlands. Glimpses of the river can be see through the trees from the right spot on the cliffs.
