This was a beautiful place to spend an afternoon. The lookout is gorgeous. We liked seeing the (small) waterfalls and bird life. The walks require at least 3 hours so give yourself plenty of time. The walks are definitely worth it!

Enjoyed the Popes Glen walk last weekend. Very beautiful views at Govetts Leap and nush scenery on the walk is lovely.

Not sure if you have been yet but there is really no need to walk very far to enjoy the look at Govetts leap itself. Most of the walks from the viewing areas are steepish decent down into the valley. You can easily get a... More
