It is easy to get to Govett's Leap and well worth turning off the main road to do so. It is interesting that the computer is asking for more than 50 characters, when I've already provided more than that.

One of the best lookouts in the Mountains. The walk to Bridal Veil Falls is special though it's quite a steep hike back. Worth the effort!

govetts leap very pleasant however the area is very repetitive but still very unique. however a drive to megalong valley is very different with a rustic tea room/cafe serving good food. does not appear to be much but so so different.

After seeing Echo Pt and the Three Sisters, and being less than impressed, we didn't have high expectations for Govett's Leap. Boy, were we wrong! Not only is it impressive, but there are no crowds, and you can take some short walks which are very enjoyable. It's a tranquil place, and we encountered people who were spending the whole day...

Love the photography, bush walking the views are Wow. Lookout points form different angles. Govetts Leap Lookout is a popular spot to stop and view the spectacular panorama before descending into the Grose Valley for one of the regions more physical walks where you can view the towering cliffs leading back up to Perry Lookdown and Evans Lookout.

The view from the lookout has to be seen to be believed, with a gentle flow of water dropping from the falls it was truly beautiful. Our extended family walked to the lookout from Blackheath, which was a enjoyable 7km round trip, highly recommended.

Highly recommend this lookout!!! I love the valleys and cliff faces, I would even suggest it's better than the 3 Sisters. Awesome walks from this lookout as well :)

We read the reviews on this site and decided to make a stop at Govetts Leap. Amenities were basic but we could park just beside the lookout, making it very convenient if you have older folks or kids. The view was indeed panoramic with the sandstone cliffs glowing from afar in the late afternoon sun. But what I love best... More

I can't get enough of Govett's Leap. I have been there more times than I can remember but love coming back and especially introducing international visitors to the place. None has gone away unimpressed. The sandstone cliffs of the Grose Valley, glowing like honey in the afternoon sun, are a hard act to beat. And it's free!. To me the... More
