  • Great views over the valley and startpoint for the walk to Govetts Leap. Road gets a bit dodgy towards the end with huge potholes, so take it slowly & with care.

  • Loved it! Beware of the road just before the National Park entrance. Shocking and deep potholes! Hundreds of them. Not National Parks responsibility. I expect it is Blue Mountains council. The lookout gives you spectacular views and is a short and easy walk from the car park. There are a few wide steps if you have a problem with steps. Seating areas at the lookout for you to while away the time while you contemplate your navel. I was there on a Monday so not too busy. But not a place for solitude. I expect it gets very busy on a weekend.
  • The view of Blue Mountains from this lookout point is stunning. It is just a few minutes walk from Evans lookout car parking area and is easily accessible. You can also proceed to Grand Canyon walking track from here. Washrooms are available, but not very clean.
