Govetts Leap is a place that I can recommend visiting for a short stop (for those simply wanting a stunning lookout view and couple of photos) right up to a full day (for those keen to do some longer walks to Pulpit Rock or exploring the Grose Valley). We almost had the place to ourselves when we arrived 9.00am.

Govetts leap provides a departure point for a multiplicity of interesting walks both relatively easy and extremely difficult but all of them stunning. You will want to come here just to see the view from the car park and if you do nothing else in the Blue Mountains see the sunset from here... there is no better view in Australia

Walking here is more interesting and more secluded than the more famous walks around the Three Sisters which can be packed with tourists

A great lookout which is also the beggining of many bushwalks. The walk to bridal falls is well worth the effort.

This view rewards the persistent traveller who likes to get slightly off the beaten track. The view is magnificent and the spot is very tranquil. Give it a go you will not be disappointed.

A beautiful view from the end of Evans Lookout Rd. We were there at sunset and walked around to the falls lookout. It only took about 15 minutes and lovely view.

Lookout to the bottom of the waterfall in 50 minutes, then we raced up the hill in 32 minutes. Exhilarating and beautiful. God's glory on full display!

You can be as active or not as you like here (and indeed anywhere in the Blue Mountains). You can just stroll from the car to the fabulous lookout or do more strenuous walks. We walked down and up to the Barrow Lookout which looks back at the lookout at Govett's Leap and has a good view of the falls... More
