guests will enjoy a stress and hurry free environment taking in the views and information imparted
by their guide.
Continuing on we arrive at Eaglehawk Lookout, a remote lookout that points away from the crowds for
views of the famous 3 Sisters. Whilst the Blue Mountains features so much more than this natural
attraction you can’t help but admire the unquestionable beauty of this amazing rock formation.
The character of the Three Sisters changes throughout the day and throughout the seasons as the
sunlight brings out the magnificent colours. Here your guide will discuss the legends behind this
famous rock formation and the time available for you to take some great photos.

and pay direct off the menu to the Café or Purchase lunch at the Pavillion.

Govetts Leap you’ll know why it’s one of the most famous lookouts in Australia. The magnificent
waterfall drops a whopping 180m to the base of the cliff. If you’re not mesmerised by the dancing
waves of water spray, you’ll be transfixed by the sweeping views down the valley to the Grose
Wilderness. We then stop briefly to enjoy a glass of sparkling wine or orange juice at the delightful
