The Princess Marina Cliff Walk was established in the 1930s as part of the Stanwell Tops Pleasure Park complex. It was named in honour of Princess Marina, the Duchess of Kent who visited Sydney in 1937. The walking track once linked the railway stations of Stanwell Park, Otford, Lilyvale and Helensburgh, however, only a remnant remains, between Lawrence Hargrave Drive and Kellys Falls Picnic Area. There are clues to what must have been a once impressive walk, with remains of intricate stonework and lookouts along the walk, but much of this has been fenced off (being too close to cliff edges). This leaves the walk as pretty bland, with the highlights being the two waterfalls at the start of the walk and the numerous Gymea lilies that were in flower at the time of my visit.
