The best view in the mountains

The place I love to photograph all year round. Stunning sunrises and the view changes depending on the season.

By far the best views, walks and nature in the Blue Mountains. Also much LESS crowded and no need to pay for parking

2.5hrs from Sydney and a perfect weekend escape with stunning views of the Blue Mountains and sand-stone walls. Perfect starting point for great walks and explorations.

Stop at Govetts Leap for incredible mountain views - especially in mornings or late afternoon. The access is via sealed road not far from the Great Western Highway, but a world away. There are short and long paths and a visits centre. Do make the effort to walk from the car park to see the forest - returning since fires.... More

All of the lookouts around the Blue Mountains offer very, very similar activities. A selection of bush walks, accompanied by picturesque views across the valley - one would expect it to become repetitive. Govetts Leap proves why the Mountains have earned their stripes. Each angle across the valley, although similar, provides a unique view, with a new sight, hidden from... More

Great new addition to my list of wonderful lookouts in the Blue Mountains. Good facilities with information centre covering all needs & info (Taxidermists heaven watch out for the emu), bathrooms, great views, and plenty of walks. Alternate view from Three Sisters. Not far off main road. One not to be missed!!

There are so many great walks in the area. Pope's Walk from Blackheath to Govetts Leap is a pretty walk that people of any fitness level can enjoy. Your efforts are rewarded with breathtaking views from several points along the way.

The walks around Blackheath, particularly from Govetts leap to Pulpit rock are spectacular, the enjoyment enhanced by the fact that the hiker is hugging the cliff face and therefore has constantly beautiful views, rather than walking through bushland and then finally arriving at a spectacular vista. The terrain is rated medium, which is absolutely fair. The only negative is the... More

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.
