About the Walking Track

Katoomba Station to The Carrington path to Cultural Centre then a short street walk to The Gully. Down Kedumba River to the Prince Henry Cliff Walk. Follow this iconic path via Echo Point, Three Sisters, Leura Cascades and numerous lookouts to Gordon Falls Reserve then a side track to Lone Pine Avenue, Malvern Road, Abbey Street, Craigend Street and Leura Mall to Leura Station.
Formerly the Prince Henry Cliff Walk, this walk takes you to spectacular panorama after panorama. It visits all the well-known viewpoints between Katoomba Falls and Gordon Falls with the added bonus of the historic Carrington Hotel, Lone Pine Memorial Gates and the quiet beauty of The Gully with its dark history of dispossession.
