Perrys Lookdown, Wind Cave, Blue Mountains, c1674

ABOUT: This is a large 20m high overhang in the cliffs 2 mins west of Anvil Rock car park. It is sedimentary erosion vs wind, but it’s effect is stunning at sunrise or sunset. I walked 15m further & up & found higher more intimate caves with views across to the Grose.

PHOTO EQUIPMENT TO BRING: You could handhold an ultra wide here for good effect, but higher up a tripod to get the caves & distant Grose blended or use a grad. Not much distance photography here, but some good flora macro very possible.

GETTING TO THE SPOT/S: Follow the dirt road from Blackheath almost all the way to Perrys Lookdown, but make a left turn about 1km before Perrys towards Anvil Rock and Wind Caves are about 1km up the hill. Walk left from the car park to the Caves.
