A Sydney woman has died after falling from a cliff in the city's east, with witnesses telling police she may have been taking photos at the time.

Emergency services were called to Diamond Bay Reserve in Vaucluse around 11.20am on Saturday following reports a woman had fallen 30 metres onto rocks below, police say.

The woman - who is believed to be 27 - was treated by bystanders until paramedics arrived but she died at the scene.

Her body was later retrieved from the rocks by PolAir.

Police are now investigating her death.

"Witnesses have told police the woman may have been taking photos when she fell," NSW Police said in a statement.

Diamond Bay has become a hotspot for tourists in recent times, with visitors often seen climbing the fence to take photos on the cliff ledge.

Waverley Council in June agreed to investigate ways to restrict or deter movement around the area, including the installation of CCTV, more physical barriers, multilingual signage and more frequent ranger patrols - particularly on weekends.

"There is an ongoing and justifiable concern that visitors are irresponsibly endangering themselves and others by crossing over fencing and boundary lines and positioning themselves on the cliff ledge," the motion noted.
