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

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
