The Giant Stairway, Katoomba

4.5
#1 of 16 in Trails in Blue Mountains
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.
