Magnificent Views

My opinion is that Govetts Leap is just as good as, if not better than, those views in Katoomba. Even better, the crowds are fewer. A must see if visiting the Blue Mountains area.

Beautiful easy flat walk. Braeburn track follows a little creek down to the excarpment. Then follow the cliff along. You can walk it clockwise or anti clockwise.

I went hear because it was the number one trek on TripAdvisor and I didn't want to be a tourist. It's located one stop after Katoomba.

Wonderful views of the Blue Mountains and some waterfalls. The sunlight hitting the cliffs is a photographers dream. There is easy access for cars and even buses. Easy walking to view area.

At the end of Govetts Leap Road from Traffic Lights at Great Western Highway Blackheath, limited car parking, a short walk to viewing area the sandstone cliffs depending on time of day are magical and will give many a photo and also back drops to pictures of family & friends, no cost to enter the national park.

Mr Govett's did not leap from here but he did survey the road that leads to this rock face and the Bridal Veil waterfall. There are vistas to the north. Many walking trails start and end here.

Best time to visit Govetts Leap is sunrise so get yourself out of bed its Magic ! If you are a photographer you must visit. For those that are mobility challenged Govetts Leap is one of the most accessable lookouts in the mountains. I could sit there all day and just sit there

We really loved the place - it's as good as 3 sisters lookout but you can be nearly alone here. Definitely a place to go
