Wonderful view and good start for an hike. After the three sisters it is a nice spot to visit. As you go back to Sydney a recommend to take the route which pass behind mount Victoria, through Bilpin and Richmond: it is a very nice scenic drive, you avoid the traffic, and you can have yummy apple pie on the...

As the heading suggest. Gotta check it out if your visiting the blue mountains! We found it better then the 3 sisters lookout and walks + scenic world. Tip walk down just past the waterfall lookout (15min walk) it's even more amazing.

when we were heading towards Govetts Leap we heard trickling water, we kept walking for around 30 mints till we found the waterfall. those were the best 30 mints of our trip! don't forget to bring you camera and record a video of the trip.

Stunning views of the Bridal Veil falls. Was amazing to see the morning mist lifting as this changed the angles of the mountains we could see.

We came here on a Sunday lunchtime and were lucky enough to find it fairly quiet without any tour buses. It would make a good picnic lunch spot and offers a range of walks with varying difficult level to neighbouring view points, e.g 15 min walk to bridal veil falls or 90min walk to Evans lookout. The waterfall itself seems... More

We visited Govetts Leap last and loved it. Amazing views especially sun rise and morning. The old stone walls and stone buildings set this park apart from the others. A definite must see!

The Blue Mountains has a lot of beauty on offer. If you want to take the kids to see it and are sick of jostling for a look at the three sisters, take a short drive to Govetts Leap. The view is awesome! There are many walking tracks for the more athletic viewer. The vastness of this wooded terrain made... More

Set in the beautiful Blue Mountains National Park is this breathtaking view of valleys and waterfalls as far as the eye can see. For spectacular views/ photographs make sure you visit in the wee hours of the morning just before sunrise I can guarantee the views will take your breath away. (If you have small children please keep a very... More

The rain cleared for the short time I was able to do a 15 min walk and then catch the breathtaking views of cliffs and mountains and waterfalls. The air is so crisp and clean. Lovely to stop and listen to the trees, the mist, the waterfalls and the birds. Amazing place. I will come back to do longer walks.
