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. 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.
