We drove up to Blackheath for the first time and I love this place. Very peaceful and beautiful, worth to drive up here if you are in the area.

Govetts Leap to Waterfall Lookout 466 steps down 100 steps up. Ideal preparation for lunch in Blackheath.

The view was wonderful and we had a great bushwalk to Pulpit Rock with 7 children aged 4 to 11. An excellent day out for the whole family.

Fantastic views, lots of close parking. The visitor Centre was great, with friendly helpful staff and lots to buy. Beats Echo Point hands down.

Wow what a stunning place. On the day we went it was cold and misty but amazingly beautiful particularly when the mist lifted and revealed the most amazing landscape. Truly beautiful

Such a fantastic view down into, and across, the Blue Mountains National Park. We were lucky to see some beautifully coloured parakeets, it's not hard to miss such vibrant blues, yellows and reds amongst the dull green eucalipt leaves. Unfortunatelly, the current drought conditions in...More
