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.

  • Such an amazing walk along the trails! There was heavy fog which made it eerily beautiful. Looking out from a lookout and seeing an abyss was a very cool experience. Made it to the falls and it loved up to its reputation. (Trails were significantly shorter than times recommended, which isn't necessarily a bad thing)
  • Absolutely beautiful views. Can get Quite busy on the weekend. Its a good place to get outdoors for a hike well worth it. You can see some stunning views of falls if you walk along the trails. The walk can become difficult and scary it did for my kids. Make sure to wear comfy shoes and take water.
  • What an awesome place Wentworth Falls is. We got there nice an early this morning, both to get a great park and to beat the rush and it worked perfectly. Once there we walked around the general picnic areas then on to the sightseeing and WOW the views are jaw dropping. Some of the lookout paths were a little wet (we have had a very wet summer), but definitely worth the extra effort. If you are not good with hights you might find some of the tracks a bit scary but there were loads of fences and supports to keep me safe.
  • Absolutely gorgeous views. The hike is well worth it. Quite busy on the weekend. The trail could be quite slippery so put on some good shoes and try to avoid it on moist days. There are different small waterfalls alongside the track. It is quite magical. Certainly even more magical from below (did not take my phone with me all the way down the trail and so none of the photos show the real majesty of the place) .
  • Great tracks and the view is amazing. Incentive in form of Waterfalls is the best thing during this entire tracks. There are different tracks for all abilities, you need a good fitness regime to get going through this track. At times the path gets narrow and becomes very scary with the deep holes mountains on the side but it’s worth it. Completed 1 track in 2 hours. Tip: wear comfy shoes and Don’t forget to take water bottle and snacks with you lol
