MOUNT BLACKHEATH LOOKOUT:
Mount Blackheath is at the very end of Shipley Plateau.
Follow Shipley Road turning right onto Mount Blackheath road and traveling to the end to see more beautiful views - this time over the Kanimbla Valley.
There are picnic tables and nearby is a ramp built for hang gliding - so if you are lucky you will be able to see gliders soaring over the valley.
