The Giant Stairway, Katoomba

4.5
#1 of 15 in Outdoors in Katoomba
Take a fun and challenging walk up The Giant Stairway for views of the Blue Mountains from the famous Three Sisters Lookout. Stop at Echo Point, which sits precariously at 170 meters (557 feet) above the valley floor, seemingly defying gravity. The entire walk will takes about 30 minutes, but there are plenty of rest stops along the way. The stairway itself is very steep and constructed mostly of stones. You will most likely feel a sense of achievement when you reach the top. Add The Giant Stairway and other attractions to your Katoomba trip itinerary using our Katoomba trip planning website .

  • This is a staircase that goes down above the three sister rocks, very steep, also very difficult to go, I probably only go to the front of the festival, walk 20 minutes is already angry panting, from the bottom of the people to tell me that he spent more than two minutes to complete a return, and these people's expression is tired, let me dare not continue to go on
