Definitely one of the best natural attractions in NSW and Australia for that matter. The walking tracks along the cliff top such as the prince Henry cliff walk are perfect for non experienced walkers. The Giant stairs and tracks along the bottom of Echo point are for moderately prepared walkers with water, phones, basic medical kit, jacket/layer's to suit the season and a small bag. Walks further afield should be only attempted by well prepared walkers with some experience in the outdoors (IMO). Echo point has toilets and a visitors centre with merchandise and maps. Car parking is paid and expensive suggest using public buses or stay within walking distance of the area. You can walk along the cliff from scenic world where the parking is free. Buses are the Blue Mountains explorer bus and offer a frequent service for tourists.
Great views in every direction. Start here and walk to the Three Sisters for a quick easy one or carry on down the Giant Stairway for a longer bushwalk in the valley. Visitors centre is worth a peak around too.
