National Parks has nearly completed a much needed upgrade of the over cliff walk from the car park to the Conservation Hut. Their track work is outstanding but it will still require good mobility to follow the full over cliff walk.

This walk provides a great opportunity to experience the Blue Mountains National Park and it’s glorious views whilst not being to hard to access. You must wear comfortable walking shoes that may get muddy and take a weatherproof jacket. It’s not a long walk but still could be a challenge for some. There are a number of access and exit points if it’s becoming too difficult.

The short track back to your start if you do the loop may reward you with a Lyrebird sighting!

Always read and follow the National Parks safety advice that is signposted clearly at the entry points.

This visit was just after a significant bout of rain and the falls were spectacular.
What makes this area so special are the paths and trails beyond the lookout.
Our favourite is the under cliff walk to the falls which winds under numerous overhanging ledges and gives some close up views of the falls. Then cross the falls themselves and take the staircase to the bottom of the falls where there are pools for a quick dip for those who don't mind cold mountain stream water. The spray mist as the water crashes onto the rocks at the base gives a totally different perspective of the falls.
The steps are very steep in parts and often quite wet so good shoes with non slip soles are essential.
The full under cliff-base of falls and return to the carpark took about 2.5 hours at a leisurely pace and 10 minutes at the base of the falls for pictures and just to drink in the experience

We did the 1 hour return trip with our young kids and gosh was it worth it. The pay off at the end of the hour was a lovely view of the baby falls where the kids could walk around the water and feel the rocks whilst being safe. The main falls are about a 4 hour (round trip) journey which our kids just couldn't manage but it would be a great goal to tackle one day. The track to the baby falls was very graded, well signed and not too challenging - don't have to be fit to give it a go. Parking is at a premium there - might take a while to find a spot but its worth the wait.

Went worth falls is fed by a stream which was dammed to form Wentworth Lake in order to supply steam engines with water on the way up to Katoomba. Hence the supply to the falls is regulated by the lake level and so it is rare that the falls are raging. But its a nice view other than the falls, although not as majestic as Sublime Point..

Excellent for all levels of walking hiking. The walk to the top of the falls is beautiful but it is a longer/ steeper way down to the bottom. You’ll be blown away by the striking views and beautiful natural shots.

Wonderful scenery. The noise of the falls, the birds and the smells of the bush are just fantastic.
The area is well signed and walks are clearly marked for direction, time and difficulty. A very well run park system

We drove to the Blue Mountains for a day trip from Sydney with 4 kids aged 3-9.
There are many walks of different levels and duration's to suit all types. The walks are beautiful with some spectacular views.
Some of the trails were closed the day we were there, due to maintenance. So might be worth checking before going there.

We dropped in to have a quick look at the falls. It had been raining and the tracks were very muddy. We did walk to the Wentworth Falls lookout which was brilliant. The commanding views over the valley and towards the falls was breathtaking.
When we next return we will wearing hiking boots and be more prepared to explore the area more thoroughly

Weeping Rock in Wentworth Falls is a small waterfall formed by Jamison Creek cascading over a rock overhang.

I was there when it was raining and the volume of the waterfall is mind blowing. Usually you’re able to walk through the stairs next to the waterfall!

📍 Weeping Rock
Via walking track from Wentworth Falls Picnic area
⏰ 1.6KM Return, 1 hour
🏔Easy to moderate
⚠️ Be careful when treading on the rocks, it’s slippery (this is a no-brainer)

Having driven past on several score occasions, I finally thought to have a look at the Falls! After doing so, I couldn't work out why I waited so long? An easy & short drive in off the Highway with a pretty full car park leads to a short stroll to the lookout. There are several view points or an approx 1 hour walk to the falls or longer more involved walks. You choose your pain or pleasure! Limited picnic shelters but clean facilities available. A great spot on a nice day.
