Once you clap your eyes on the view from Govetts Leap you’ll know why it’s one of the most famous lookouts in Australia. The magnificent waterfall drops a whopping 180m to the base of the cliff. The ‘ozone-laden’ air of the Blue Mountains was promoted as a health tonic since the early 1800s, and when you get there, you’ll realise why.

If you’re not mesmerised by the dancing waves of water spray, you’ll be transfixed by the sweeping views down the valley to the Grose Wilderness. Early bushwalkers saved this rare patch of majestic mountain blue gums for future generations. Keep your eyes peeled for the vibrant king parrot and listen for the ‘weela weela’ cry of the yellow tailed black cockatoo. Remember to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch.

If you’re inspired to explore the park further, visit the nearby Blue Mountains Heritage Centre.
