Evans Lookout at Blackheath is a great Blue Mountains lookout, and not only because it is a starting point for a couple of excellent walking tracks including the Cliff Top track and the Grand Canyon track. At Evans Lookout there is plenty of room to make yourself at home and enjoy a picnic lunch while overlooking the Blue Mountains National Park. This lookout is also a perfect sunset spot — settle in and watch on as golden hour lights up the sandstone cliffs of the valley.
