A gentleman on the flight down from Ayers Rock recommended we visited here when he heard we were heading to the Blue Mountains. The viewing point has absolutely wonderful views of the Blue Mountains. Highly recommend

This place is one of the reasons the Blue Mountains have a World Heritage listing. Magnificent long distance views are strangely peaceful and thought provoking. Take your walking shoes, hats and bottles of water and go exploring either side of the lookout.

The Govetts Leap lookout did not disappoint, it was amazing view to see the waterfall and the majestic rock/mountain formation. The air was crisp and not crowded at all when we visited.

What a beautiful site and it was lovely to see the waterfall flowing so well. It was the perfect weather and just the right amount of tourists to not have to jostle for a spot to view.

Lots of good walks from here, and pretty views just from the car park! Beware after rain however, the track will be muddy with puddles! (also check yourself for leeches) Pope's Glen walk is a good one if you have a bit more time, nice...More

We were lucky with the weather when we visited. The trail to the viewpoint is easy to medium (it had been raining so some places were very muddy and there were a few steeper ascends) and so worth it. You can also drive and park...More

I recently visited Govetts Leap with some friends. We found the whole experience outstanding and the views were amazing. Lots of nature walks catering for all levels of fitness. With picnic tables and toilets near by, a great place for a lunch stop.

Not sure if you have been yet but there is really no need to walk very far to enjoy the look at Govetts leap itself. Most of the walks from the viewing areas are steepish decent down into the valley. You can easily get a... More

Jenolan Cave - Imperial, Diamond or Orient Cave? (14 Replies)
I cannot decide which cave tour to take with my 4 year old boy Please also advise if below plan is feasible. - Evans Lookout/ Govetts Leap Lookout / Pulpit Rock Lookout - Campbell Rododendron Gardens - Hartley village - Lunch - Check into Jenolan Cave House - Check out Blue Lake & do one bush walk - Do one cave tour - Dinner at Jeremiah's Bar - Fish & Chips or Chisolm's Restaurant (fish dishes)

I had a look at their website and would probably suggest you contact them as to the suitability of caves for your 4 year old. The cave are not suitable for strollers, so your lad would have to walk.
Blue Mountains from Sydney Not on a tour (7 Replies)
I've researched tour groups (very expensive or not going where I want to go and we don't want to go on a coach bus) so I'm trying to plan our own tour using the train from Sydney and then transportation from the train station. I've read previous posts and guidebooks and have a couple more questions on our plan: 1) We will leave early, walk through Katoomba and buy a picnic lunch and proceed to Echo Point. 2) walk down the staircase, walk the loop and take the scenic incline back to scenic...More

Zig Zag railway will be closed for a while till they sort throgh any damage to lines etc from the recent bushfires Re Blackheath/Govetts ..cabs at all railway stations shouldn't be a problem so you could either get a cab from Katoomba to take you there or get the train to Blackheath and grab a cab from the station there weekends are much busier The views from Govetts will be marred by fire damage - that was the side of the BM's that got burnt thanks for planning to visit the Mountains .....More

Don't think it matters that much. Featherdale is a tourist attraction which will have tours there no matter what time you arrive. Fit it into your itinerary for what works best for you.
