      This small, projecting lookout directly below Govett's Lookout dates from 1968, when it was constructed in anticipation of a visit by the then Duke of Edinburgh which did not eventuate.
      Princes Albert Victor and George (later King George V) visited Govett's Leap in 1881 and had breakfast at this lookout, which was renamed Breakfast Rock in their honour, and later shown as Breakfast Point in the Pictorial Guide to the Blue Mountains 1882.
