“Stunning Views!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

This is a must for any trip to the Blue Mountains, the views are amazing! There didn't seem to be as many people here either compared to the other lookouts along the highway too so it's a bonus! Plenty of parking too!

“Breathtaking views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

Absolute breathtaking views from this point! We stopped off here on the way back to Katoomba from Jenolan Caves and it is amazing... and free! It would have been wonderful to see it at sunrise perhaps. I was at Echo Point at 5.30AM and very disappointed.. this may have been the place to be. Definitely somewhere you have to stop off at if you are travelling through Blackheath.

“Incredible views from Govetts Leap”

Bridal Falls, Pulpit Rock, Evans Lookout oh my!! There was also an easy, beautiful drive on Hat Hill Road where one can walk to Anvil Rock and some interesting caves.

“A must see if you are passing through Blackheath”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

This is the most accessible of the many spectacular views in the Blue Mountains. When travelling along the Great Western Highway it is 5 minute diversion from the main intersectiion in Blackheath to one of the most stunning views imaginable.

It is on the schedule of many of the passing tour groups so can be busy at certain times, but one can drive to less than 100 metres from the look-out and it really is a must see.

“Spiritual at dawn!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 11, 2013

We had been tipped that this was an awesome view at dawn and we were not disappointed. It was more than worth getting up and we were almost alone. There were two other people and we got talking to one who was a local and it felt so good to know that people really appreciate where they live and what they have at their finger tips. The mists rising from the mountains made wonderful views and watching the sun rise and warm the valley was rejuvenating.
