Katoomba Falls can be seen easily from the Katoomba Cascades walks, various lookouts along the Prince Henry Cliff Walk, and Scenic World if you so choose. The picnic area is great.

The best views are from the "Skyway" cable car. There is also a little walk from the Katoomba side down to various levels of the waterfall

The Katoomba Falls is a nice sight to take in as you walk around the blue mountain area. The guides there say it has never been recorded as drying up since records began which is very rare for a waterfall in this direction.

View the falls whilst taking the Skyway or simply walk around on the walkways. Relaxing listening to the water flowing.

There is convenient access at Scenic World leading to a few lookout points for Katoomba Falls. Well done Blue Mountains National Park and staff. The fall could be the smaller version of other falls in the region but still worth a visit. If you plan...More

The falls are very pretty from the skyway. The falls are on a natural spring so they are always flowing. Its worth a photo from the skyway.
