a great place to experience the expance of the blue mountains. A bit disapointed that there was no warter on the horseshoe falls but to enjoy the bush walks and lookouts was spectacular and well worth the effort.

Great view. Walk into the Valley strenuous but well worth it. Can get quite busy on weekends and public holidays but outside of those times quiet and full of bird life.

Quiet spot for beautiful mountain view. Breath of fresh air and enjoy the walk around the area, away from the noisy tourist spots

Go here at sunset! It is away from the crowds at the three sisters and you see the mountains go orange-gold as the sun slowly sets behind the mountains. Lots of parking and toilets.

Governs Leap is a very popular tourist stop for people visiting the Blue Mountains. You will see why the surrounding landscape is called the Blue Mountains. You literally stand, safely behind the fence, at the top of a huge approximately 300 metre high cliff edge,...More

Govett's Leap Lookout offers a clear view for miles and miles northward, in direct contrast to Echo Point on the southern escarpment. Plenty of free parking, though the council is planning instal parking meters later this year. Great spot to capture the sunrise. Many walks...More

Make the extra 16km drive from Echo point. This lookout is much quieter and provides a view to a waterfall. Quiet with fewer people adds to the beauty of the Blue mountains. Bathrooms available, drive to parking lot is down a steep slope, take care...More

This is a great place to see waterfalls and admire rock formations. We cannot miss it. We can walk through the arch and then stop at the pillar that is named “Govett’s Leap” Look for the views. They are amazing! It is worthwhile!

This is my favourite place in the world! The sheer beauty, quiet and breathtaking views are incredible. No matter how many times we visit, it is never enough. I also love that it is not as crazy as other places such as the 3 sisters....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
