- Echo Point Lookout (Three Sisters), Prince Henry Cliff Walk, Katoomba NSW, Australia
Situated within the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area, the Three Sisters stands as an iconic geological formation that should be witnessed at least once in a lifetime. The Aboriginal tale surrounding the Three Sisters may vary, but the universal consensus is on its breathtaking spectacle.
Dominating the territory of the Gundungurra and Darug People, the acknowledged custodians of this designated Aboriginal Place, the majestic Three Sisters is most effectively observed from the Echo Point lookout, perched on the plateau’s edge.
The Three Sisters exhibit varying characteristics throughout the day and across different seasons, showcasing magnificent colors illuminated by sunlight. They remain floodlit until approximately 11 pm each night, creating a breathtaking contrast against the dark expanse of the night sky.
Individually, the Three Sisters stand at heights of 922, 918, and 906 meters, respectively. To put it in perspective, that’s over 3000 feet above sea level!
These three time-worn sandstone peaks, shaped over millennia by erosion, are nestled amid the cliffs of the Jamison Valley. From the lookout, one can also catch sight of the Ruined Castle and Mount Solitary.
