This place is one of the reasons the Blue Mountains have a World Heritage listing. Magnificent long distance views are strangely peaceful and thought provoking. Take your walking shoes, hats and bottles of water and go exploring either side of the lookout.

The Govetts Leap lookout did not disappoint, it was amazing view to see the waterfall and the majestic rock/mountain formation. The air was crisp and not crowded at all when we visited.

What a beautiful site and it was lovely to see the waterfall flowing so well. It was the perfect weather and just the right amount of tourists to not have to jostle for a spot to view.

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.

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.
