Visitor Information Centres
Our Visitor Information Centres are at Glenbrook and Echo Pt, Katoomba...
In mid-October 2019, Council will start work on several projects to improve Echo Point for the community and visitors.
The upgrades include:
• a new gathering place (amphitheatre)
• a new Prince of Wales Lookout
• an accessible, night-lit boardwalk connecting the lookouts, amphitheatre and Council's accredited Visitor Information Centre (VIC), and
• security bollards and CCTV.
We expect to complete the works by August 2020.
There will be partial closures of Echo Point during the construction period. We thank you for your patience during this period.
The accredited Visitor Information Centre at Echo Point will remain open seven days a week, 9am to 5pm, throughout the project (except for Christmas Day). Our friendly staff can help you plan your visit in the Blue Mountains.
Council received matched funding from the Federal Government’s National Stronger Regions grant program for this project.
A new gathering place (amphitheatre) is being created, in consultation with Traditional Owners, to provide an impressive and immersive experience for all those who visit the site.
