See this Virtual Tour in FullScreen High Definition mode.

The Blue Mountains is a wonderful place 1.5hr drive west of Sydney. We’ll spend the next few days here having a look around.

Govetts Leap, near Blackheath in the Blue Mountains, provides a spectacular point to view the Govetts and Grose gorges. The vertical cliffs drop 160 metres, with the floor of the gorge lying over 400 metres below the lookout. In 1846 Travel writer G.C. Mundy wrote of Govetts Leap:” It is Certainly one of the grandest freaks of nature I have seen in any country – quite beyond the power of pen or pencil to delineate”
