Following the cliff edge from Katoomba Cascades to Gordon Falls, near Leura, this moderate walking track boasts some of the best views in NSW.

AMAZING! Watch out for the expensive car parks in town!

Only a partial tick for this - we only covered the Scenic World to Echo Point section. Fantastic views and a brief stop at Katoomba Cascades

This track is wonderfully accessible from Leura, where we usually stay when in the mountains. One particular favourite lookout is Olympian Rock. Lovely views of Mt Solitary and the “other” side of the Three Sisters.

What a glorious walk this was, plenty of lookouts to take photos from. Lots of stairs to negotiate but well worth the view of the Leura Falls at the end. We did round trip from just before the Katoomba Skyway

Heaps of spectacular lookouts. If you are looking to explore the Blue Mountains this walk is a great place to start. Passes Scenic World, Three Sisters Katoomba Falls and Leura Cascases. The walk is fairly well signed too.
