We visit the Blue Mountains area regularly so it’s always exciting to explore something new. Although this Blue Mountains accessible walk is not new, it’s had a make over and we love the upgrade. The Three Sisters walk starts from the information centre at Echo Point and takes you closer to the Three Sisters.
The concrete path on the Three Sisters Walk is wide and makes for easy wheeling. It ends at a boardwalk viewing platform.
Even on a cloudy day the vastness and beauty of the area is stunning.
Although this walk is suitable for wheelchair users the sign at the start of the walk does state, “suitable for strollers and assisted wheelchair users.” Although it is easy going on the way down, part of the walk is steep and more suited to a power wheelchair , particularly on the return.
BJ is light and Hubby managed the walk without a problem but I want to point out one more time, this walk does have steep section.
If the Three Sisters Walk is too steep for you, don’t be disappointed. The views from Echo Point are stunning and there is a choice of two viewing areas, perfect for photo opportunities with the Sisters!
I really hope you get to visit this part of our country because it truly is magnificent. When I need rejuvenation it is my go-to place. You have to experience it to understand.
Echo Point parking – It’s busy at Echo Point at just about any time of the day. Bus loads of tourists arrive from Sydney every day. There is disabled parking in a car park, on the street and there are three 1 hour parking spaces beside the information centre (these are the most level and easiest if available)
Echo Point Disabled Toilet Facilities – There are stand-alone unisex disabled toilet facilities near the Information Centre. They are large facilities allowing for a companion to assist a wheelchair user if necessary.

If you are looking for another accessible walk in the Blue Mountains area, head to Blackheath and try the Fairfax Walk. The views at Govetts Leap (pictured below) are well worth the short drive from Katoomba.
