#2 of 9 in Parks in Katoomba
Situated within the Blue Mountains World Heritage National Park, Wentworth Falls 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. Add Wentworth Falls and other attractions to your Katoomba trip itinerary using our Katoomba travel app .

  • An awesome walk! When the water is low you can explore a little farther down the top of the waterfall, but it's a little risky of course. The falls are beautiful from both above and below and a visit is well worth it.
  • Great walk to the falls. It really is medium hard. Steep walk back up to the car via steps so you need to be able bodied. Beautiful views still from the top lookouts so you won't miss out if you don't get to the falls.
