Rainforest Walks, Furber Steps, The Giant Staircase, Scenic World, Echo Point and more. The home of the Three Sisters. This Coal-Town turned tourist town is the heart of the Blue Mountains along Great Western Highway crossing and full of activity.
Just a few minutes walk from Echo Point to this lookout overlooking the Jamison Valley and the Three Sisters, an easy stroll and accessible by wheelchair. You may add another five minutes to the bridge that leads across to the first of the Sister's and the entrance to the Giant Staircase.
Katoomba Falls is best seen from the Furber Steps lookouts such as Queen Victoria Lookout which we rate as the best lookout for seeing the Three Sisters. The track leads down from near the Scenic Railway into the valley.
This is the major town of the Blue Mountains. See Katoomba's charm – art deco streetscapes, small family owned stores and a budding arts and music scene. Stop at the top of the tow, near the railway station for restaurants, the Paragon or the Carrington Hotel. Katoomba St and Lurline St offer charming boutique's , galleries and cafes.
Echo Point is the most visited spot to see the famous Three Sisters. This and other lookouts nearby are selected as one of our last activities of the day, the afternoon sun reflects on the sandstone rocks and cliffs below. In the distance the valley shows a blueish haze. Katoomba is also the site of the scenic railway. An optional ride into the valley if desired.
