Govetts Leap Reviews
ブルーマウンテンズの眺めがすばらしい。滝も見えましたが、雨が少ない時期なのか降っていなかったのか水量が少なかったのが残念でした。 有名観光地のエコポイントと比較するとぐっと人が少なくてそれがとてもよかったです。 駐車場から歩いてすぐ展望台です。公衆トイレもありました。 ここからEvans Look out までのハイキングもできるようですが、 今回は車を回送することができなかったので歩けませんでし... more »Wonderful view of the blue mountains. Is water a little less rain falls also looked at what it was not sorry. Compared to the famous tourist destinations of the eco-point system much less people and it was very good. Walking from the parking lot, the Observatory is now. There was a public toilet. Unable to route the car can also hike up Evans Look out from here, but I can't walk.
I love this place. Have been coming here for over 40 years - my very favourite lookout in the mountains - so much better than The Three Sisters! Great walks - spectacular views - excellent!!!!!! more »
We went here for a picnic dinner. Such incredibly views. A very romantic spot to take that special someone. The birds were soaring in th evening thermals and the wild flowers were beautiful. We loved ... more »
This is a great place to visit, have a picnic lunch, or if you are fit, and I do mean fit, go for a bush-walk down into the valley. The views here are similar to what can be seen in the Grand Canyon in the USA, however the vegetation and terrain is much lusher than the G.C. There are good clean toilets and picnic tables with bench seats in cute, stone constructed shelters. There are no trash bins, however, and visitors are asked to take their rubbish with them when they leave. There is a National Parks Office visitor centre at the entrance to this park. It has a gift shop, an information counter and during peak times they may also run audio-visual presentations in their small theatre. If you do decide to walk one of the clifftop tracks, just be aware that they defend and climb steeply in sections. You need to be fit, to carry water and some snack foods in your day-pack, and be prepared to stop and rest often, unless of course you are 20-something, fit and able and can jog most of the way. The views into the valley are spectacular, with the occasional waterfall to add sparkle to your visit.
We were recommended this place by our climbing guide as the best views of the Blue Mountains. Definitely a worthwhile detour it wasn’t busy and didn’t take long to come off the main road. Like most people with a limited time for travelling worth stopping by at.
Love this look out. The start of lots of great walks with varied train for the novice to the seasoned walker. Bring a bag for your own rubbish please! Free parking with one of the best views in the blue mountains.
What a view! We rocked up knowing nothing about the look out - we spent a few mins in awe of the view and then saw the Bridal Vail Falls and WOW - simply stunning. We ventured down the track to find some very secluded look outs that gave a better view of the falls and surrounding cliffs. Worth the visit.
What a beautiful piece of the mountains! Lots of great walks, amazing views, toilets, ample parking. Plan to spend a good few hours here to enjoy all it has to offer
