One of my favourite early morning walks - park at the Oval near Katoomba Falls, walk across the top to the Giant Stairway, down then back across to the Furber Steps to ascend out of the valley - best views across to the Three Sisters...More

Great walk down to the valley. Takes about 1.5 hours to get to the train. It was nice to hear the native birds singing and chirping in the valley below.

Loved it. The teenagers walked up the stairs in 26 minutes and then waited half an hour for their unfit mum who had too many breaks and was chatting to people. The steep stairs was worth the challenge. Everyone friendly and waiting for a group...More

If you mean to descend via the giant stairway, yes you can do that and take scenic railway back up to the scenic world. You will need to walk from when you get to the bottom to the scenic railway for probably 1 hour, or even... More
