We started the hike from Govetts Leap towards Cliff Top Track to Evans Lookout, down to Govetts Gorge, via Rodriguez Pass, downstream along Govetts Creek and to Junction Rock.

This 7 to 8 hours trail can be hiked throughout the year but it's best in autumn (March/April) and late spring (October/November). During summer it is hot inside the canyon and also for the climb out. Important; check the water level of Greaves & Govetts Creek first at the information center. Flooding can occur after heavy rainfalls.

Weather

Most rainfall in summer from November to March/February. Winter months are drier and sunnier. The precipitation at the Blue Mountains is similar to Sydney. Snow is not very common. In the summer, day temperatures can increase up to 35 degrees and even more but are mostly bearable. Nights are pretty cool. Nevertheless, each season is different and can be great for hiking in the Blue Mountains.

Yellow-tailed black cockatoos can be spotted during summer, the winter season is too cold for them.

The Three Sisters are located close to Katoomba. The names of the three rocks from the left to the right are Meehni (922 m), Wimlah (918 m), and Gunnedoo (906 m).

The Three Sisters rock formation and Echo Point are the most popular part of the Blue Mountains. To avoid the crowds come here early morning. For a good shot, they are best from midday until afternoon - perfect light on a sunny day. It's very crowded here with lots of tour buses. The hike itself is quiet and peaceful and the ideal way to enjoy the Blue Mountains' nature. Fewer crowds during winter.

The Blue Mountains were declared as National Park in 1959 and are World Heritage Site since 2000. There are many hikes, outlooks, and beautiful nature to explore.

The waterfall looks best in the morning with sunlight on the water spray. The flow of the waterfall is at its best after heavy rainfall which occurs more often during the summer.
