A 20 minute walk from Katoomba railway station, Echo Point Lookout offers amazing views of the Blue Mountains National Park, extending kilometres into the distance.
The lookout has an upper, wider viewing area and a lower viewing area, with a sheer cliff face drop over the side of the railing, that is accessible by a ramp which also connects to other walking trails around the side of the cliffs.
To the left of the lookout is the iconic Three Sisters - a rock formation with an intriguing, albeit varying, Aboriginal backstory.
The lookout itself is accessible for free, though parking in the immediate vicinity costs money. Buses run regularly from the station and main street of Katoomba. There are also several cafes and gift shops next to the lookout.
