“This family-friendly walk treats you to ever-changing views of the grand Three Sisters, rising nearly a kilometre above sea level.
Pass through the archway, next to the Echo Point Visitor Centre, and you’ll soon be surrounded by soaring eucalypt forest, bird calls and fresh mountain air. Keep an eye out for the superb lyrebird and crimson rosellas as you walk the gently sloping path for 400m to Oreades lookout. Marvel at the incredible views of the Three Sisters’ weather-eroded sandstone turrets, and the hazy ‘blue’ Jamison Valley stretching to Mount Solitary.
On the way back, enjoy the short signposted detour to Spooners lookout. If you’re feeling energetic, there are plenty of longer walks nearby, including Prince Henry Cliff walk, Dardanelles Pass loop walking track, and the Three Sisters Walk to Scenic World via Giant Stairway.”

The following are excerpts from Havewheelchairwilltravel.net:
"The concrete path on the Three Sisters Walk is wide and makes for easy wheeling. It ends at a boardwalk viewing platform.
Although this walk is suitable for wheelchair users the sign at the start of the walk does state, “suitable for [...] 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.
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."Other accessibility information:
