Came during the day and this is a great place for night photography as you drive straight up to the look out. No bush walk like a few other places. Went at about 9ish and someone already out there. Sunrise was really great too, would recommend for anyone wanting to enjoy with or without the camera. Dress warm and wear... More

This location offers beautiful scenic views and some historical information. There is plenty of parking and public toilets so good for families. There are a few bush walking tracks available for those keen for a bush walk.

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
