The Basics

Today the landmark is a popular destination, and a trip to Echo Point—a viewing and access point for the Three Sisters— is an easy day trip from Sydney. Visitors can walk down a very steep and winding staircase of about 800 steps past the rock formation and connect with other walking trails at the bottom of the valley.
