Walking Track Description

An easy clifftop stroll above the Jamison Valley and Federal Pass, this popular walk is a great introduction to the Blue Mountains.

From Scenic World, leave the car park and head along Cliff Drive towards Katoomba Falls Road and the charming Katoomba Falls Cafe, a scenic spot to down a coffee or scoff a Devonshire Tea!

From the cafe,  continue along Katoomba Falls Road until it intersects with the Prince Henry Cliff Walk and follows the clifftop.  Just a few minutes along the track is Mt Solitary and another spectacular view over the valley, looking back towards Scenic World. The next kilometre or so of track follow the clifftop to Wollumai Lookout, and provide a series of breathtaking elevated vantages above the valley. On a clear day, particularly in winter it’s amazing how far you can see.

Towards the end of the track, almsot below the Echo Point viewing platform , is a wooden bridge set above a trickling creek  in a tiny thicket of rainforest, popular with parrots and cockatoos. From here, the track climbs up to Echo Point and the world famous Three Sisters.
