as good as 3 sisters with much less people

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

I don't know why this lookout overlooking the Grose Valley isn't as famous as the Three Sisters lookout at Echo Point in Katoomba, about a 20 minute drive east of Blackheath. It is certainly as spectacular, especially if you visit after recent rain and witness the pounding waters of the Bridal Falls thundering into the valley over 100 metres below.... More

Loved the views, would visit again for the day and try some of the walks on offer. Only a short drive from the centre of Blackheath.

We walked the Bridal Path down to an observation platform to get a great view of the falls. The sign says it's a 15 minute walk, but it's very up and down. We old folks took longer, especially on the climb back! Fantastic views of the sandstone wall and down the Grose Valley. We were very lucky with the weather,... More

There are several great spots to see the Blue Mountains, especially in Katoomba. Govetts Leap is about 20 minutes away and it provides another great spot to see the Blue Mountains. The Falls are great here and are both similar and different than Wentworth Falls. There were far fewer people here than those at the lookouts in Katoomba. This made... More

Stunning views, great walks that are not too difficult. A fantastic opportunity to get back to nature and really enjoy the spectacular scenery that only the Blue Mountains can offer.

The Blue Mountains come highly recommend and after making the trip I am not surprised. There were lots of tracks you could take some more challenging than others. I would say though this would not be the choice for anyone with walking difficulties as the steps could prove challenging. That said however the views are amazing.

This is my favourite bushwalk in the Blue Mountains. It is pure bush magic. I've done this walk in the middle of winter when it was raining and blowing a gale force wind and there was no-one else on the track. I've also experienced it in spring when the sky was blue and high in the sky and all your... More
