Location: It is preferred to visit this site on a sunny day when the Blue Mountains are not obscured by low lying cloud. Access Ridgeline Reserve via Prospect Highway travelling S off the M4 at Prospect, continuing south via Reconciliation Drive, turn left into Bulu Wagun Drive and continue to parking area just near boom gate. Walk through the bus pass area along Bulu Wagun Drive for 100m to access entrance to the Marrong Reserve (Previously Ridgeline Reserve) and access via steps or graded path to the western skyline high point. Note that at the time of printing the NSW Globe imagery predates the recently completed walking tracks in the reserve. Walk south about 200m along the fenceline to the point where there are two concrete blocks that can be stood on with a view south over the exhausted, now redeveloped quarry pit and west to the Blue Mountains.
