Evans lookout – wheelchair accessible walk Blue Mountains

This may be controversial, but I think I have a new favourite lookout in the Blue Mountains. Previously, Govetts Leap Lookout has held the illustrious title but with a recent accessible upgrade, Evans Lookout is now in the lead for the best spot to appreciate the majestic Blue Mountains National Park. Offering views as far as the eye can see, there is no better place to stop and enjoy everything that draws people from around the world to see. Accessible walks with a view are few and far between so I was so happy to see the incredible accessible upgrade to this beautiful Blue Mountains lookout making it accessible to all.

No matter how many times I visit the Blue Mountains I always have to make a stop at Echo Point to see the Three Sisters. I encourage any first-time visitors to the Blue Mountains to do the same. But if you’d like a quieter experience, meaning less tourists, or if you’ve visited Echo Point many times, make sure you put Evans Lookout on your must-see list.

Evans Lookout also provides a stunning back drop for photos and without the elbowing that often goes on at the busier scenic lookouts around the Blue Mountains.

I asked Hubby for his rating on the push-ability of the Evans Lookout walk and he gives it an eight out of ten. He found it a  leisurely walk without a need for extra muscle-power.

We never take for granted the ability to do a lovely walk as a family like this one at Evans Lookout. The Blue Mountains holds a special place in my heart as many happy childhood memories were created here for me. We are incredibly lucky to have such a gorgeous area to explore within an hour and half’s drive of home.
