Blackheath is renowned as one of the Blue Mountains best spots for views and bushwalks of the area.
We took the Govett’s Leap road, just a short drive off the main road.
Also at the end of Govett's Leap Road is the National Parks & Wildlife Heritage Centre, well worth a vist for it's displays, information leaflets, maps, books and advice. There is also an easy nature walk, The Heritage Track which starts from the centre plus a picnic area with BBQ facilities and toilets. Other all day nature walks are available with varying degrees of difficulty. check them out if you have more time.
The views are spectacular of Govetts & Grose gorge, with the vertical cliffs dropping 160 metres into the floor of the gorge.
The lookout has spectacular views of Govett's Leap Falls that plunge 170 metres into the Grose Valley’s Grand Canyon. There wasn’t much water going over them in October, would love to see them after good rain.
You can view them from the top lookout, or take a short walk to a little lower lookout.
Address: Govett's Leap road, Blackheath
