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.

  • Really beautiful falls - a "must see" if visiting the blue mountains. Well worth taking the 30min walk to the falls. Also are other lookouts with great views, plus plenty of walking trails in the area. There is also a plaque honouring Charles Darwin who passed this way in 1836.
  • It's got history, geology, culture... Perhaps a little more indigenous connection and context wouldn't go astray. But it's the great outdoors and a great place to experience it. I was really encouraged to find that it was quite a multicultural experience despite no international tourism at the present time. This made it so much more fun and enjoyable, to share together with such a diversity of people. My calf muscles took a while to recover from the walk to the bottom of the falls and back. But it was worth it in so many levels. There is some very impressive/sensitive restoration of tracks, stairs and pathways making it a better experience. And wildflowers!
