I walked down the Giant Stairs and it was a little scary at times but very beautiful. if it is at all cold out I recommend bringing gloves because the hand rails are metal and my hands were freezing by the time I got to the bottom.

Make sure you've done your exercises and are fit and well before tackling the Giant Stairway. I went on a bushwalk which involved going down to the bottom of the stairway. Maybe I was not fit enough to do it, but it took me a week to recover!! Ouch!!!!

we walked the 900 stairs down and 900 stairs back and it was exhausting, but with a clear day and decent walking shoes, definitely worth it. It's a good one if youre looking for a personal challenge!!

Great way to see the Three Sisters up close. Be ready to get sweaty on the climb back to the top - it's worth it though.
