Five Things to do at Scenic World Blue Mountains

                                      GOVETT’S LEAP LOOKOUT
One of the most famous lookouts in Australia. The magnificent waterfall drops a whopping 180m to the base of the cliff. The ‘ozone-laden’ air of the Blue Mountains was promoted as a health tonic since the early 1800s, and when you get there, you’ll realise why.
Located at the end of Govett’s Leap Road is Govett’s Leap lookout, which is possibly the second most popular vistas in the Blue Mountains. With a spectacular view of Govetts & Grose gorge the vertical cliffs drop 180 metres into the floor of the gorge.


Created in 1970 on 18.5 hectares at the northern end of Blackheath.  Managed by the Blue Mountains Rhododendron Society, a community organization of volunteers with members throughout Australia.  It is a garden unique in the world – no other garden has attempted to plant exotics underneath their existing native bush on such a large scale. 

                             THE THREE SISTERS
The Blue Mountains’ most spectacular landmark located at Echo Point Katoomba, around 2.5 kilometres from the Great Western Highway, this iconic visitor attraction is experienced by millions of people each year.

If guests behave themselves and don't cheat on the golf course, we will visit -

*   Shag and Ted at North Haven / Laurieton, and

*   the Two Nicks at Port Stephens; and       

'cause you are a looooooooooong time dead.
