A variety of tracks to choose from through the Eucalypt forests - straight and level or steep and windy, long or short, waterfalls or forest.

This is the most beautiful point of the blue mountains region. We drove upto the point and then there was hardly any walking from the parking area. The point overlooks a beautiful waterfall and a valley. From here, there is a 15 minute walk, which is mostly steep stairs to "Bridal veil waterfall" and also another trek path leads to... More

A lot quieter than the Three Sisters area but with views to match and a great view of the waterfall. A number of walks available, but lots of steps so not as accessible as some areas.

Another very fine Blue Mountains vista. One thing to note, from this older mostly quite unfit and short person - the walk to the Pulpit (2.5 km) is truly at least 1.5 hours long. And for shorties like me, a major challenge and workout. Many very difficult "stairs" to negotiate. I did feel most pleased to make it to my... More

great view from this lookout! We walked for 2 hours on the Cliff Top Trial from Evans Lookout to Govetts Leap. This is a very easy walk and I would recommend it to family travellers. My daughter of 10 yrs old and my parents in their ealry 70's has no problem to handle this one way walk.

The walk from Govetts Leap to Bridal Veil Falls and back is a moderate walk but is steep in sections but worth the effort. Make sure you go past the falls and on to the next lookout which is only 100 metres or so past the falls. Gives a good view back to the falls and the track that goes... More

Fantastic walk along well kept path with stunning views along the way. Takes approx 45 mins one way - take plenty of water! Less touristy than 3 sisters - staff very helpful in visitor centre and will give advice
