This is a must to see. As Blue Mountains areas are basically Rock,Cliffs,Crevasses, Bushland, Huge Trees and more Rocks , therefore Anvil Rock is unique !! If you have not heard about it then it's a must do on your list.

The road to Anvil Rock has a few kilometres of dirt which isn't bad but still needs to be driven slowly and carefully. The walk to Anvil Rock from the car park is only 5 minutes and there is a great lookout with a wood...More

On this busy long weekend Anvil Rick was a great space away from the crowds. A little off the beaten track but worth it, Windswept cafe is worth a visit too, just nearby.

A must visit if you are in the Blue Mountains. Anvil rock lookout offers beautiful view of the valley, but the wind eroded cave is the main point of interest to me. It looks amazing with texture and formation.

Amazing rock pile, good safety rails, actual anvil at the very top. Great views along the sort and easy walk to the Rock. I was thrilled standing on the top and taking in the view. Worth the drive.

I keep coming back to this stunning place. What i really like is the magnificent views, the cliffs, valleys and it is just perfect. Truly God's gift to humanity. Advice - be cautious and follow the reminders for travellers safety.
