Introduction:

Blackheath is a country village located towards the western end of the Blue Mountains between Medlow Bath and Mount Victoria.

The north-east edge of town overlooks the Grose Valley which can be observed from lookouts and walking tracks towards the end of Hat Hill Road. Am easily accessible lookout is provided at the end of Govetts Leap Road where a network of walking tracks lead down the valley and along mountain streams and waterfalls.
