Relevance to Cox’s Road: Cox’s Road is 1.7km due north of this view. The Lapstone fault line is clearly visible from here. Whilst from Prospect Hill (S116) a two dimensional view of the Blue Mountains as a plateau can be observed, with protruding basalt capped remnants, from Tunnel View, a three dimensional perspective is experienced. From here it is possible to discern the plateau as very dissected through to Wentworth Falls, the ridge line hosting Cox’s Road is visible, as are Mounts Hay, Banks, Tomah, Wilson and Irvine.
