Another one for your BUCKET LIST ~ the “GRAND CLIFF TOP WALK” that goes from Katoomba Cascades, Maple Grove Park, here: https://w3w.co/applauding.tossed.inhalation to Sublime Point Lookout, Leura, here: https://w3w.co/poppy.fearing.glassware“.
This is a great walk and it should be on every bushwalkers bucket list. It’s a safe walk suitable for all ages who can manage a 3-4 hour one-way walk. Very few people walk the full distance.

If you don’t have the energy to do the return walk, either use 2 cars or call Katoomba Taxis on 4782 1311 for the return trip back to the start and your car.
We recommend doing the walk going East as it’s a little easier “stepwise”. ALSO, start in the early morning if it looks like being a hot day.
Park your car at Katoomba Cascades, Maple Grove Park car park, and walk along the Prince Henry Cliff Track past the East side of the Scenic Skyway.
The walk follows the Prince Henry Cliff Walk to Echo Point and the 3 Sisters, then onto Leura Cascades via Fossil Rock and Bridal Veil Lookouts. NB: As of June 2020 the upper Cascades is closed, but this does not impact this walk.
From there, it’s onto Olympian Rock and Elysian Rock Lookouts and right around to Gordon Falls Lookout.
The track brings you out about halfway down the path to Subline Point Lookout.
RETURN: Return the same way OR hop into your other car OR call Katoomba Taxi 4782 1311.
RUBBISH: Bring it out with you.
NB: We did this walk in August 2019.
