Evans Lookout to Goverts Leap

I completed this walk at Blackheath in the Upper Blue Mountains with an NPA bush-walking group.
We started at Evans Lookout and walked the cliff-top track to Govetts Leap.

Crossing Govetts Leap Brook


The track afforded great views of the Grose Valley along the way

A route 698 bus ran from outside the Carrington Hotel at Katoomba to Evans Lookout Rd and St Andrews Ave. at Blackheath. It's about 2.8Km from here to the lookout at the end of the road.

The 698 bus also goes to the Blue Mountains Heritage Centre in Govetts Leap Rd.  The centre provides information on the Blue Mountains National Park and surrounding areas, an interactive educational display, video screenings and a gallery. There is also a very easy walking track which starting at this location, which is considered suitable for wheelchairs - see The Fairfax Track

see Blue Mountains Bus for current time table information

Many thanks to our walk leader John.
