Cliff View

ABOUT: This is probably both the easiest to get to lookout and also one of the most expansive. The paved, wheelchair friendly, trail is only 5 mins long and takes you to a view that takes in Scenic World area on your right (Katoomba Falls just out of sight and tropical valley) and the wide open Jamison ahead and left. Clear views of Mt Solitary and Ruined Castle plus narrowneck bending around from the right. Go early or late to avoid crowds.

PHOTO EQUIPMENT TO BRING: A ultra wide 14-17mm range is great to get the whole scene or panorama stitching works great too. For misty mornings or sunrises off to your left, bring a tripod.

GETTING TO THE SPOT/S: Park in the Katoomba Cascades car park, just around the corner from Katoomba Kiosk area and follow the signs.
