If you’re looking for a walk that’s out of the ordinary and offers great views then this could be the walk for you.
It can be done 2 ways.
The first from North’s Lookout, Katoomba. To do it this way, you need to park your car near the Explorer’s Tree and walk down to Norths Lookout to start the walk. This adds about 20 minutes to the walk. You return the same way.
Head off along the Bonnie Doon Track. The return walk will take you about 90 minutes.
The first lookout you’ll come to is Therabulat, the indigenous name is Dhurabulla. You’ll reach the turnoff to the left in about 5 minutes. Therabulat was the name of an aboriginal tribe that lived in the Megalong Valley.
Norths Lookout named for John Britty North (1831 – 1917). John Britty North is commonly referred to as “the father of Katoomba”. He figured prominently amongst the men who undertook the task of exploiting the area’s coal and oil shale resources in the 1880s and 1890s and built and operated the Katoomba coal mine on the site of the present Scenic Railway. He provided employment for many miners and for the butchers and bakers and candlestick makers of Katoomba.
