Weather was wonderful and this enhanced the views which we experienced from the lookout. Unfortunately we did not come equipped with suitable shoes for doing the walks

Good thing I've been here before and know how good the views over the valley are, because this time the fog did not clear as was forecast and all I could see was the mist. This meant fewer cars in the car park right next...More

Amazing view. Always different depending on time of day, cloud,mist etc. Easy access for everyone. Just a flat 25 meters from car park to lookout. Nice picnic areas and toilets.

Always worth a quick detour to see another example of the Blue Mountains grandeur. Our visiting relatives were blown away by the size and ease of access. The walks nearby are also worth considering.

Govetts Leap is a great place to unwind in the Blue Mountains. You get an amazing view of the valley and the nearby falls. There are hiking trails around this place for an extended walk.

Wow, what an amazing view from here. Govett's Leap is actually the name of the waterfall you can see from the lookout, but you also get a wonderful full view of the amazing and huge Grose Valley. I've been to the Grand Canyon in Arizona...More

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

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.
