Echo Point

Overview

Please note: Part of the Echo Point Lookout is closed until August 2020, while the Echo Point visitor precinct is being upgraded – for details visit the website.

The Visitor Information Centre remains open daily, seven days a week (except on Christmas Day).

Echo Point, located in Katoomba on the edge of the spectacular Jamison Valley, is home to the famous Three Sisters and is surrounded by a variety of bush walks and amazing lookouts.

The Three Sisters are best seen from Echo Point lookout, perched on the edge of the escarpment. These three weathered sandstone peaks, rising nearly a kilometre above sea level, formed thousands of years ago through erosion. They are set among the cliffs of the Jamison Valley, and from the lookout you’ll also be able to see other impressive rock formations including the Ruined Castle and Mount Solitary.

The lookout is the gateway to many great walks, from the easy, family-friendly pathway out to the Three Sisters to the more challenging Giant Stairway that leads you down almost 1,000 stairs to the valley floor.

Visit the Blue Mountains Visitor Information Centre at Echo Point for all the latest information on what to do and see while you are visiting the area. The centre is open daily, closed only on Christmas Day.

Echo Point lookout is on the traditional land of the Gundungurra and Darug People. Visit the nearby Waradah Aboriginal Cultural Centre and witness Australian Aboriginal culture in a contemporary gallery, with dance and didgeridoo performances, authentic Aboriginal artworks and souvenirs.
