Grand Cliff Top Walk Itinerary


What if there was a way to experience the wildness of the big Blue – without sacrificing comfort?

There is.

The yellow-tailed black cockatoo (Wumbarrung in Gundungurra language) wayfaring signs guide you from village to village European-style over two days along the 19km Grand Cliff Top Walk between Wentworth Falls and Katoomba.


Collect a fresh brew to kick start the day and takeaway lunch for later from FED Blue Mountains before setting off on the Grand Cliff Top Walk from Wilson Park on Falls Road.

Your constant companion is the yawning view that draws your eye south – up to 80km on a clear day to Mittagong and the Southern Highlands as you wend your way in and out of dripping rainforest gullies to the call of the lyrebirds.

The Conservation Hut is a great pause point for morning tea, and beside the fairytale Pool of Siloam for a picnic lunch (if the weather is warm, you might take a dip).

A European-style sauna experience at Blue Mountains Sauna will relax those tired muscles before a tasty dinner at Jiggle Korean BBQ in Leura and, followed by a long soak in a claw foot bath at luxury digs Varenna by Mountain Whispers.


Start the day fuelled from Sparrows Café, then grab takeaway lunch from The Bunker at the top of Leura Mall before stepping along the Prince Henry Cliff Walk, where the Grand Cliff Top Walk links together the maze of historical routes into one seamless journey.

By the time you arrive at Echo Point and those famous Three Sisters you’ll need to take a moment to take in the view with a snack and a drink at The Lookout Echo Point before embarking on the last push to Scenic World.

Arrive before 4pm (8pm Friday, Saturday and school holidays) and you can grab a well-earned drink at The Terrace Bar before hopping on the big red Blue Mountains Explorer Bus (last bus at 4.17pm) to Katoomba to tip the bubbles at The Carrington Hotel’s Champagne Charlies and great pub food at the Old City Bank Brasserie at the end of the driveway.

Historic guesthouse No. 14 Lovel Street is the perfect sanctuary to retreat overnight before grabbing an early (or leisurely) brekky at Tempus Up Early and heading back home.
