This lookout is much quieter than many of the others, and no less beautiful. It is definitely worth a visit.

This was our first lookout at the Blue Mountains - which ever other had to live up too (and many didn’t). A very short, easy walk from the car park and you have a choice of two spots (which are also easy to get too...More

This is a glorious lookout, especially in the afternoon when the sandstone cliffs catch the sun. There are some excellent bushwalks along the valley edge or into the valley from here. Highly recommended

The lookout was not too far, 1.4km. Out we went and we saw some beautiful views. Wow! Amazing! We saw the valley and the mountains. Even though there was some haze, it was still attractive. This was worthwhile for a 1,4km trek. Worthwhile to enjoy!

Maybe not quite as spectacular as the nearby Govett's leap but still wonderful. Worth following the paths around for a little bit to see the views and experience the area from other angles.

Another lookout that gives great views of the Grose side of the Blue Mountains. Esay walk from carpark to the two lookout areas. Of course you can use as a starting point for longer walks.

While tourists flock into Katoomba for the Three Sisters, locals come to Evans Lookout to really enjoy nature's gift. The view from here is truly magnificent.

Beautiful views can be enjoyed from this lookout which includes vertical cluff faces, trees valleys, and raptors and cockatoos. Accessing this lookout requires a short easy walk.
