Living in the blue mountains for a decade and having never visited govettes leap we should be ashamed of ourselves. This is truly worth seeing. Simply amazing. The kids were in awe. Just don't miss this if you are in the Area.

We arrived about an hour before sundown on a cold day. The sun was shining and bouncing off the cliff faces creating lots of colour. The waterfall itself was strangely serene but beautiful nonetheless. There are lots of trails to be walked around here, unfortunately time didn't permit us. I'll plan a little better the next time. Great scenery.

A beautiful lookout with plenty of enjoyable walks. I would definitely recommend adding this to your list of "things to do" when in the Blue Mountains!

One of the great lookouts in the Blue Mountains. Magnificent photo options, and a great step-off point for a swag of bush walks. Visitor information centre on-site as well, so you can access maps and the like if you intend of taking walk.

Beautiful scenery, great view of Bridal Veil Falls. We took a walk to the top of the falls - lots of steps and it is pretty steep and tiring coming back up so a medium fitness level is required.

Worth the quick trip or the launch on for longer walk through the canyons. Not the more commonly known views of the Katoomba / Leura areas of the mountains, but still stunning and a number of day or longer walks are accessible from Govetts leap defending to the valley floor. Worth a look for wonderful views where the crowds are... More

Must do place to visit in the Blue Mountains - spectacular views and great walks of varying degree - some short and some longer ones. Also places to have picnic/bbq

Most visitors to the Blue Mountains go to Echo Point / Three Sisters and look at the view out over Mount Solitary and the Jamison Valley. Govett's Leap looks out over the opposite side of the ridge (Grose Valley side) and is very different. The view here is out over a massive canyon and (I think) more spectacular than the... More

There's something special about Govetts Leap - the scale is a little less sweeping than Echo Point or Sublime Point, Bridal Veil Falls is visible from the main lookout, the picnic tables and facilities are close to the carpark so good for both small kids and the elderly, and it's the beginning and end of some great walks, but it's...

The Blue Mountains are nothing short of breath-taking. There are waterfalls dropping 180 metres to the base of the cliff and views you can only describe as majestic. The mountains go for as far as the eye can see. The walk/track definitely requires you to be an able climber but for those not wanting to get amongst the bush, visit... More
