It was our first lookout of Blue Mountain after checking in but it was really "wow". The view of the entire valley is amazing. This is already really good if you don't have much time like me but I would guess the track to going down would be impressive as well. Thumps up!

Visited October 2014 and the late afternoon scenery was breathtaking, truly awesome. Rugged bushland sweeps up to the mountains and makes you appreciate how special the australian landscape is. In hte quiet you can hear the waterfall - but it is out of sight. Well worth a visit.

My husband and I went to Govetts Leap after attending some other natural spaces around the area. Beautiful, stunning and the best way to see some of the amazing Blue Mountains.

A quick stop and walk around the escarpment is worth the time. The photo opportunities are outstanding.

The view over Grose Valley is panoramic and unforgettable. A number of splendid bush walks commence from here. The Clifftop Walk to Evans Lookout provides magical views. Longer, more strenuous walks descend down into the Valley.

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
