Echo Point Lookout reviews
Sadly we came on a foggy day. Couldn't see a thing. I think you can still walk but it was raining and the paths wet and muddy.

Many trails, many views, nice restrooms and gift shop. Also good eats and beer garden nearby. On a clear day, a green Grand Canyon!

One of the quintessential Blue Mountains tourist attractions. With a few decent bush walking tracks dotted around this, it makes for a great day trip up from Sydney if you are into nature and bush walking. There a few cool eateries on the high street which is a 20 min walk away, however, there are a few options closer by. The train ride up from Sydney City takes about 2 hours and is quite a relaxed and picturesque ride in. Parking is also available near the spot although it does fill up pretty quick during the holidays. Scenic world is also near by.
Great views! We arrived just in time before it started to get quite busy (around 10:45). Easy access to a few different viewing platforms. The stairs to the three sisters were very narrow and busy, so we gave that a miss. Parking for an hour and a half was $12.60 (meters are card payment) There were toilets and an information centre at the lookout too.
After eventually getting parking it was great. The views awesome, although plenty of people there, so was very busy. Be prepared to either park a fair way away from the site or try and snag a park closer. Maybe because it was New Years day it was busier than most days, but maybe it's like this all the time. Parking is paid between 0800 - 1700 Mon to Sun, if you can find a spot. After 1700 then no charge.
One of the most amazing views in Australia. Really well set out, lots of parking, local shops, clean public toilets, friendly atmosphere. There is a park and picnic tables and lots of families around. The area is very spacious and you get to see a clear view of some of Australian geological history. Really worth the trip. About 1hr 15mins from Sydney with new roads all the way. Do it
With breathtaking views of the Three Sisters, the Jamison Valley, Mount Solitary, and other landmarks unlike any other in the mountains, Echo Point Lookout is a must to do in Blue Mountains, NSW. It is the most popular tourist spot in the Blue Mountains, attracting thousands of visitors every day. Easy access, clean, and well signed. 5 min walk from car park. Highly recommended!!!
