Must see · Waterfall · Lookout
Situated within the Blue Mountains World Heritage National Park, Wentworth Falls Lookout is the largest waterfall in the region, featuring two drops. The waterfall is near several aboriginal sites estimated at being around 20,000 years old. A lake formed by the cascading waterfall is a popular picnic spot, located just a short walk from the nearby village. You can swim or join the Darwin's Walk tour, named after Charles Darwin, who visited and researched the area. Be prepared for a lot of steps on the various walks offered, which can take you to the waterfall or to the nearby viewing platform. These steep trails are meant for all fitness levels, but be sure to wear comfortable shoes.

  • Beautiful place for hiking. All options available - easy, medium and difficult level walks. If one takes the route of national pass one can enjoy breathtaking views of Falls and pools to get a quick dip. There are 2 waterfalls that are accessible easily and quickly the third one takes about 3-4 hrs and steep steps to reach. Charles Darwin walk is closed at the moment. Overall a very good experience 👍
  • Short and wonderful hike towards the waterfall. Lots of stairs when coming back up from the bottom of waterfall but really worth it going down at the bottom. Amazing views. Just one of the wonderful trails around the blue mountains
