Mount Portal Lookout is a 100m, grade 1 Return hike located in  New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 10 mins to complete.


This is not so much a walk as a ‘park the car and enjoy the lookout’. The walk is short but the views are great. If you are in the area this spot is well worth a visit. The views from the lookout include Glenbrook Gorge the Nepean River and Western Sydney looking over Penrith. The lookout is accessible by people in wheelchairs and worth the drive along dirt road to get there.
