This was a beautiful place to spend an afternoon. The lookout is gorgeous. We liked seeing the (small) waterfalls and bird life. The walks require at least 3 hours so give yourself plenty of time. The walks are definitely worth it!

A highlight to any visit in the mountains, if you are a keen walker. The track is narrow in places, very rocky, with some sections almost rock scrambling, much of it follows the cliff edge, and it ends up at the amazing pulpit rock lookout....More

We ended up at the end of Govetts Leap Road by lucky accident. The view from the lookout is spectacular and also includes the falls to the far right. We returned the next day to take the cliff walk to Evans Lookout, which has another...More

There are fantastic views from here, and a number of interesting walks. We walked to the nearby Bridal Veil Falls, it was a pleasant walk, although with a lot of climbing down and then back up.

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
