We enjoyed fantastic views at Govetts Leap lookout in Blackheath! Most people don't go further than Katoomba when travelling to the Blue Mountains but they're missing out on even more spectacular views by not going 10 minutes further up the mountains to Blackheath.

There is nothing else to be said about this place. It is as beautiful as it has been for the last couple of thousand years. Hiking trails are well maintained on the whole although in recent months (since the last election actually) there have been far fewer National Parks staff in evidence - which is a shame as they're always...

This is a world heritage iisted site. It is both scenically magnificent and awe inspiring. It is a must do in the Blue Mountains region of NSW. Take your time to sit and feel the energy there. It is breathtaking. Try to avoid visits on weekends or public holidays, as there can be up to 200 visitors there at a... More

After a short and bumpy drive or possibly a long walk, the view at this lookout point is unique as it is a viewpoint that is wide and much of the blue mountains and its valley can be seen.

Great place to visit to see the beauty of the Blue Mountains. Lots of international visitors there when we visited, parking was OK although there were many cars there and not everyone is considerate when parking, more cars good be accommodated there if patrons took more notice when parking and parked closer together instead of using 1 1/2 car parks.

Weather you want to stand feet from your car or take walks from easy to difficult and an hour to many you will enjoy Govetts Leap. Easy to access and not far from The Great Western Hwy. Plenty to do and eat in Blackheath too!

A not-at-all commercial view of Nature's beauty. Unlike the Three Sisters in Leura, this is a pristine beauty, not heavily promoted, and therefore not inundated with tourists.
