In August 1888 Sir Frederick Darley bought a little more than 11 acres at Echo Point, Katoomba and built a retreat house for the family to access the mountains air for their daughter Lilian who may have contracted and died from tuberculosis. It is assumed the house was named Lilianfels is in honour of Lilian, coupled with the German fels for high land.
