Blue Mountains National Park
Many walks are currently closed due to COVID-19. Please,
  • check the walk's official website to confirm if the track is open
  • turn back if it looks like the track is too busy when you get there

This grand tour of the Wentworth Falls area explores many waterfalls, lookouts and cliff edges. The walk has a lot of steps and runs beside fenced cliff edges, so walkers will need to be fit and comfortable with heights. The walk explores the historic National Pass, Wentworth falls, the Valley of the Waters and many other highlights. There is an optional side trip to the Conservation Hut for lunch, before returning to the start via the Overcliff walk and Den Fennella. A great way to explore the majestic views.
** NATIONAL PASS CLOSED FROM 2017 UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE - check NPWS for latest info **

Heaps to see. The Overcliff section is currently closed but the Lyrebird and Breakpoint lookouts are still accessible from the (signed) Shortcut Track.

One of the best walks I've been on despite being so unfit and struggling on the stairs back. Views and waterfalls well worth it. A very pleasant surprise made even more beautiful with autumn leaves out in their splendour. Just keep a hot flask on hand.
