The tourist facilities are excellent, with a couple of viewing platforms, an info centre and a nice gift shop and café near by. Best to come early in the day or in the evening when all the tour buses have left. It's very hectic mid day.

We went here over the Xmas School break with our daughter. I had been wanting to see the Blue Mountains and the 3 Sisters for quiet some time. In going along we new it was going to be busy from all the tour buses we saw around. It did not hinder us however. We drove to the site ourselves and... More

On a sunny day this lookout leaves all the rest for dead. We only live 2hours away but keep coming up here. Best to get here early, before 9am as that is when the paid parking starts, the influx of tourist begins and you also lose the best light for photos.

While it was very busy over the Australia Day long weekend, we visited on Saturday afternoon (drizzling slightly) and again Sunday morning (sunny). While it was busy, we found people moved quickly allowing for others to view the sisters. The information centre was also busy but people also moved through quickly. Due to the busyness, there may be a little... More

I had never seen the 3 sisters and was dying to see it, but meh, it was too busy! It was fun to see but try going really early or around sundown, to beat all the tourist buses! Luckily, all the amazing landscape around it makes up for the incredulity of the area! I would recommend doing a sky train... More

Echo point has marvellous views of the 3 sisters and valleys. We were there in the early evening and so did not have to worry about crowds. Parking is a Minimum of $4. Even if you only stay for 15 mins! We followed the road around and down the hill a little and found free parking. Sure a 10min walk... More

Just looks like a few quasi-big rocks on the side of a cliff to me. The surrounding nature areas make up for it though.

Takes some work but it is tons of fun to hike down the stairs and get a closer look with fewer people. Get an early start.
