This long-time favourite, the Blue Mountains' most touristy attraction, offers spectacular views. Ride the glass-floored Skyway gondola across the gorge and then ride the vertiginously steep Scenic Railway, billed as the steepest railway in the world, down the 52-degree incline to the Jamison Valley floor. From here you can wander a 2.5km forest boardwalk (or hike the 12km, six-hour-return track to the Ruined Castle rock formation) before catching a cable car back up the slope.

The 686 bus stops at Echo Point and here, and this is on both the hop-on, hop-off bus routes, but it's only a 2.5km walk from Echo Point, and quite a pleasant one too.
