What to Do at Wentworth Falls

Tucked away in the velvet-canopied confines of the Blue Mountains, Wentworth Falls is a majestic waterfall promising breath-taking views from its peak. It’s known as one of the most stunning waterfalls in the mountains, and marks the point where the popular Jamison Creek drops down over the escarpment and cascades almost 300m into a large pool. From there, it weaves down the creek into the Valley of the Waters like something out of a fairytale.

As well as boasting incredible views, there are plenty of other things to get stuck into while you’re at Wentworth Falls, whether you’re looking to take walk through the magical undergrowth or want to experience local life in this charming part of Australia.
