Awesome views, without a need for a long walk. Waterfall. There are extra walks available but we didn't do it.

This lookout is just as beautiful as Echo point.. decided to go for a walk to Evans lookout as it was rated medium... well just a word of advice it edges on "hard" rating.. we only got half way and came back as I knew I would struggle... alright going down but many many steps back up.. so a word of advice anyone with heart or asthma condition think twice.... another lookout that is underated and not mentioned is Hargraves lookout out from Blackheath... short drive towards Shipley plateau and Megalong valley... we actually thought this was the best out of all of them... to us it beat Echo point... go for a drive and check it out you wont be dissapointed 😊🌱

We visited Govetts Leap and Blackheath in the Blue Mountains near Sydney last November. We had intended to get in some serious walking as preparation for a hiking trip to Japan.

The scenery seriously made me think of dinosaurs roaming around in the valley beneath us, it's like time has stood still and there is a real sense of age about the place. The quietness is deafening - it's great to just stand there and say nothing and enjoy the peace of this place.

There are numerous bush walk options and a great National Parks and Wildlife office just about 500m from where the above photo was taken. We ended up shortening our walk as the paths down to the bottom of the valley were closed due to rain. We still managed a fantastic walk along the top of the cliffs and back taking in this waterfall and another one around the corner on which the police rescue were doing a drill.

The walk along the top of the cliff and back probably took 2 hours, there are a few steepish sections but very doable for someone with average fitness levels. Be warned though that the walks along the bottom of the valley are much more difficult, especially the walk back out at the end!! It's also worth letting the Parks and Wildlife officers know if you are heading out on a more difficult walk - there is a log book in their office. People do get into trouble on these walks or are under-prepared for the changing weather conditions, so the number one thing is to be careful.

Still, for photographic opportunities you can't go wrong - even on misty, rainy days like the one that we had. Also, in Blackheath there are numerous great bakeries and coffee shops to rest in afterwards (and before, ha ha!).

Visiting the Blue Mountain would have to be a must on any travellers itinerary and Govetts Leap and Blackheath are a little bit less touristy than Leura and Katoomba more geared toward hiking and bush walking, not so many gift shops smelling of potpourri. Blackheath is actually the highest town in the Blue Mountains and on a good day the views are out of this world. On a bad day it's still very atmospheric and there's more chance of the waterfalls flowing.

We visited Govetts Leap and began the track to Pulpit Rock. The scenery is breathtaking, but I have to say while the track was graded medium, defined by having some steps or stairs, it felt fairly difficult to me. I wonder who determined the grade of the track, the up and down stairs is not an issue for me, it was that some of the steps where very much find your footings on the rocks. But all that said it was an amazing track to walk and Govetts leap is spectacular.

Govetts Leap is a truely magical place to sit and contemplate life. I must have stood and watched the endless stream of water cascade over the cliff top careering down to the foot of the waterfall for a good ten minutes without uttering a word.

The view down the valley is simply spectacular. We just pondered for a good half hour before taking on a bushwalk.

I've gotta say, you do need a certain level of fitness, but it was well worth doing.

Would I recommend a visit to govetts leap?.........absolutely. You'd be made to miss it.

The only thing I hate is being charged for parking to see attractions that belong to everyone.
