Start at Scenic world - walk the Prince Henry Cliff Walk and then go down the Giant Stairway and walk to the scenic railway to get back up - fun morning out!

Taking the stairway down to the honeymoon bridge to the first Sister is exhilarating. Brilliant photo opportunities to be made. You just need luck with the crowds, as it is a slow process down & back up. The stairway is very steep but quite solid & of steel construction.

One of the most beautiful walks i have ever done. Step by step, colourful birds cross your path, a path upstairs, downstairs.

The 2.5-3 hour circuit from the 3 sisters to the scenic world cable car traversing the national pass from the base of the 3 sisters is one of our favourites. While there are some 900 steps to decend alongside the 3 sisters, there are safety rails and it's fairly safe. Good walking shoes with non slip soles recommended as the stairs are often wet and the teIl can have some muddy spots, particularly after rain At the time of our vist on 10 February m the cable car back up to Scenic World was closed due to damage caused by the severe rain aNd fallen trees.the walk back to the top takes an extra 40 minutes and there are a lot of stairs! However, the trail has a lot more character than the stairs down alongside the 3 sisters and is worth the effort. There are some wonderful viewing areas over the valley, and the 3 sister sillouette. At the top. There is a bus service that can take you back to the Echo Point carpark

We walked here from Echo Point. The Stairway has 1000 steps, so not for the faint hearted. Be aware that in the rain forest there are leeches, so closed in shoes or deet are advisable. We walked through the rain forest towards Scenic World and paid $25 each to come back up on the Scenic Railway. The round trip back to Echo Point took about 2.5 hours. Really enjoyable. Highly recommended.
