Opened in 2012 and boasting some of the best views of the Blue Mountains. The Narrow Neck escarpment looms up from the valley floor and in the afternoon the sandstone cliffs are transformed by beautiful bright orange and yellow colours as the sun drops lower over the Great Dividing Range to the west.
