Lady Darley Lookout Track is a 200m, grade 3 return hike, located in Blue Mountains National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 20 mins to complete.

Hike Summary

This walk provides the shortest access to Lady Darley Lookout from the road. Starting from Panorama Dr in Katoomba the walk heads down a hill with stairs to the lookout. The lookout is on the Prince Henry Cliff walk and provides great views of the Kedumba Valley. Although popular this is much less busy than the nearby Echo point lookout.

  1. I have visited Echo Point many times and always have been in awe. But today was the first time I chose to take the walk to Lady Darley Lookout and I was certainly not disappointed! The view is amazing and is far less crowded with visitors.

    I’m intrigued though – does anyone know how high this point is above the plateau below? It seems very high but I am a very poor judge of height or distance.

    I’m so glad I got to see it on a clear day. It was unforgettable!

    1. Glad you enjoyed the walk. The lookout is approximately 925m above sea-level. The Kedumba River below is around 300m above sea-level. Hope that helps.

  2. Yes, that helps!

    I’m so glad I found this spectacular Lookout. I knew it was “high” and from what you’re saying that means it’s height above the valley below is around 600m.

    That *is* high. Perhaps not by “world standards” but everyone there (almost exclusively foreign tourists) were also impressed, especially with the gorgeous escarpments and bushland that also surround you.
