“Awesome view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Echo point has an amazing views of the valley and the 3 sisters rock formation, but is as exciting as looking at rocks if your into that thing! Spent about 15 minutes there before moving on to scenic world! Great for a photo opportunity!

“For the best views of the Three Sisters”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

While the Three Sisters are indeed the landmark of the Blue Mountains, not everyone has the energy or time to actually hike all the way to these rocks. This is where Echo Point comes in, and it has all the "usual" visitor facilities, including proper walkways, a large photography area, restrooms, and even a large souvenir shop.

Best of all is that for all these, there is no charge to visit the Echo Point and we only have to pay for parking (when driving there) or the hop on-hop off bus ticket!

“A view to remember”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

This is the view of the Blue Mountains which has to be seen. Panoramic views with 180 degree visibility to the west is unsurpassed. A must do. Parking is a problem so be prepared to feed the local meters. There are many excellent cliff top walks from Echo point. A good Information Centre with very helpful staff is a very good facility for tourists.

“Stunning views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

For views of the Blue Mountains and the Three Sisters, this purpose built complex of lookout, shop and other facilities is excellent. We visited at a quiet time so were able to enjoy the views unimpeded by crowds. Some of the trails were closed for maintenance so we could not explore as much as we would have liked to.

“Wow what a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Wow what a stunnning view, easy to find, easy to park & easy to walk around. This is a great place to have a quick look at the Three Sisters & the impressive valley surrounding them. We only had a very short time & everything here made it easy for us to do this hassle free.
