Echo Point to Barrabaroo Lookout is a 4km, grade 3 Return hike located in Blue Mountains National Park New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 2 hrs to complete.


Following the cliffs this track is primarily a lookout track with frequent fantastic views of the Jamison Valley. These lookouts can be accessed directly from the track without the frequent side trips (and thus backtracking) of other Katoomba cliff walks. On reaching Barrabaroo Lookout the trail heads back along the cliffs to the extremely popular Echo Point.
