This walk captures three of the best lookouts along this line of cliffs - Denfenella, Princes Rock and Wentworth Falls Lookouts. The walk between these lookouts is generally not too hard, allowing you to thoroughly enjoy the superb views. Let us begin by acknowledging the Dharug & Gundungurra people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
