Wentworth Falls

Wentworth Falls was named in 1878 after William Charles Wentworth, one of the three European explorers who crossed the mountains.

Wentworth Falls is home to the biggest waterfall in the Blue Mountains with the first drop being 110 metres and the second 48 metres.

Visit the quaint village or take a stroll along the shore of Wentworth Falls Lake, which was originally created to provide water for steam trains. The lake offers a great picnic spot and children's playground.

Many bushwalks originate around Wentworth Falls varying from 30 minute walks to full day hikes. The National Pass walk offers great views of the Jamison Valley and the surrounding cliffs.

The Conservation Hut Cafe offers fantastic views over the valley and casual daytime dining.
