Get ready to be engulfed by the Grose Valley at this awe-inspiring lookout. The beauty of this lookout is that the vantage point of Pulpit Rock noses out into Govett’s gorge, giving you the feeling of being completely engulfed by the cliffs and valley. There are three levels to the rock, and since each offers […]

Govetts Leap is the second most popular lookout in the Blue Mountains behind Echo Point (famous for its views of the Three Sisters) but it’s no less incredible. Govetts Leap lets you take in sights of the Grose Valley, which IMHO is the most spectacular-looking valley in the Blue Mountains for its wrap-around sandstone cliffs, […]

A touch of adrenaline makes this lookout more than just a good view.  With Mount Blackheath’s more famous sister lookout – Hargraves Lookout – so close by it’s tempting to bypass this one when exploring the upper mountains, but I urge you not to.

**UPDATE: The Grand Canyon Loop track is closed from October 2015 to mid-June 2016.

Tracing a ledge above Blackheath’s Grand Canyon it takes hikers though lush rainforest gullies, […]

This is one of my favourite walks in the Blue Mountains because it rates so highly on all the measures of what make a walk great. It’s very well maintained; there are spectacular views at the beginning, middle and end; the scenery is surprising and awe-inspiring all the way; it’s a loop track, which means […]
