Last weekend we had family visiting and we took them up to Blackheath to the Blue Mountains Heritage Centre. From the centre we discovered an easy-grade walk down to Govetts Leap Lookout. It’s a 1.8 km zig-zag bitumen track suitable for old people, wheelchairs and toddlers alike.
Along the way, we were treated to lots of different types of gum trees losing their bark.
From the lookout we could see all the way across the Grose Valley to Mount Hay. The temperature was mild, the air clear – a perfect summer’s day in the Blue Mountains.
