Lots of good walks from here, and pretty views just from the car park! Beware after rain however, the track will be muddy with puddles! (also check yourself for leeches) Pope's Glen walk is a good one if you have a bit more time, nice...More

We were lucky with the weather when we visited. The trail to the viewpoint is easy to medium (it had been raining so some places were very muddy and there were a few steeper ascends) and so worth it. You can also drive and park...More

I recently visited Govetts Leap with some friends. We found the whole experience outstanding and the views were amazing. Lots of nature walks catering for all levels of fitness. With picnic tables and toilets near by, a great place for a lunch stop.

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.

We took the walk towards the Evans head lookout and made the lookout past the waterfall. The walk has significant amount of steps and like all Blue Mountains lookouts you need the weather to be on your side.

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

If you’re sick of hiking, this view is for you! It’s right next to the car park but is still majestic and worth visiting

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
