Top 5 Places to Propose in the Upper Blue Mountains
With over a million hectares of sandstone plateaus, escarpments and gorges to choose from, it’s difficult to narrow it down to just 5 places to propose in the Blue Mountains – but here they are.
Now we’ve down the hard part, it’s just a matter of finding a partner, buying the ring and dropping down on one knee.
1. Lincoln’s Rock – Popular amongst wedding photographers and Instagrammers alike, the big attraction of Lincoln’s Rock is its impressive ledge, which makes it appear as though you’re sitting on the edge of a cliff.
2. Olympian Rock – Tricky to find but worth the effort, Olympian Rock is a magical place. As you walk down the steps, the clifftop drops away, leaving you with a panoramic view of majestic Mount Solitary.
3. Scenic Skyway – Every year we have about 10 proposals on the Skyway here at Scenic World. Gliding between the cliff tops, 270 metres above the Jamison Valley may be a hard act to follow, but popping the question as you cruise over Katoomba Falls certainly makes for a great story to tell your grandkids.
4. Juliet’s Balcony – This lookout may require you to don some active wear but it’s worth the effort. Imagine the Jamison Valley is Sydney Harbour, then this is Mrs Macquarie’s Chair and the 3 Sisters are the Opera House. Confused? Take a look for yourself – it’s a hidden treasure.
5. Anvil Rock – Located near the upper Blue Mountains town of Blackheath, Anvil Rock is a beautiful, weathered sandstone rock formation which offers magnificent views over the Grose Valley to Mount Banks and Mount Hay. Access is via a dirt road, so ditch the Bentley and bring the Barina.
