Like all the lookouts in the Blue Mountains everything is very clean and there are great spots for photos. Worth visiting and then check out "Wattle Cafe" for Breakfast/Lunch!

As with most of the lookout points in the Blue Mountains range, there is ample and convenient parking. The walking routes are well signed and facilities are clean. I would mark my review higher but due to the bad weather some of the views were obscured by a wall of mist! I took one of the routes down toward a... More

We parked our car at the National Park information centre and walked along the Fairfax Heritage Track through the bush towards Govetts Leap. It was an easy walk along the path. The views from the Govetts Leap lookout are amazing. There are gum trees as far as the eye can see. The valley below is spectacular. A very peaceful place.... More

The view from the carpark alone is spectacular. Of the walks - we only had time for the short walk to the Horseshoe falls, a well worn (and prob in need of updating) track, not a lot of water flowing, still pretty and saw a Lyrebird - huge bonus.

It is easy to get to Govett's Leap and well worth turning off the main road to do so. It is interesting that the computer is asking for more than 50 characters, when I've already provided more than that.

One of the best lookouts in the Mountains. The walk to Bridal Veil Falls is special though it's quite a steep hike back. Worth the effort!

govetts leap very pleasant however the area is very repetitive but still very unique. however a drive to megalong valley is very different with a rustic tea room/cafe serving good food. does not appear to be much but so so different.

After seeing Echo Pt and the Three Sisters, and being less than impressed, we didn't have high expectations for Govett's Leap. Boy, were we wrong! Not only is it impressive, but there are no crowds, and you can take some short walks which are very enjoyable. It's a tranquil place, and we encountered people who were spending the whole day...

Love the photography, bush walking the views are Wow. Lookout points form different angles. Govetts Leap Lookout is a popular spot to stop and view the spectacular panorama before descending into the Grose Valley for one of the regions more physical walks where you can view the towering cliffs leading back up to Perry Lookdown and Evans Lookout.
