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, and 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.

The 'ozone-laden' air of the Blue Mountains is fresh and invigorating, and was promoted as a health tonic since the early 1800s. The area is also home to a rare patch of majestic mountain blue gums which were saved by early bushwalkers for future generations. Remember to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch, and keep your eyes peeled for the vibrant king parrot and your ears open for the 'weela weela' cry of the yellow tailed black cockatoo.
