The name Lapstone Hill was coined in 1832 and was the name given to the slope of the eastern escarpment of the Blue Mountains that resembled the stones cobblers held between their knees to beat leather against.

Venture off the Great Western Highway and take the Lapstone Zig Zag Walk to learn about the area’s history. Walk where the train tracks once stood, through sandstone cuttings and past the old Lucasville platform, to the famous Knapsack Viaduct. The Bluff Lookout is located between Glenbrook and Lapstone stations and provides great views over the Glenbrook Gorge.
