Located in the heart of the Blue Mountains between Medlow Bath and Leura, Katoomba is the main tourist hub and largest town within the Blue Mountains.
Stretching for almost one kilometre along both sides of Katoomba Street is the town's commercial centre with a rich collection of eateries and retail outlets. The town also includes a golf course, racing circuit and other sporting facilities.
Echo Point is the location of the most recognised natural feature in the Blue Mountains, that being The Three Sisters rock formation. From the car park, walking tracks lead to various lookouts which offer panoramic views of this attraction and the surrounding valley. From the lookout at Echo Park is the Giant Stairway which consists of 841 steps down to the floor of the valley below.
Scenic World is Katoomba's premier attraction, offering two types of aerial rides above the Jamison Valley with fine views of The Three Sisters or a scenic coal mining railway which descends into the valley.
