Minnehaha Falls

New South Wales

This track takes you along a management trail across a ridge to the falls lookout. It then continues downwards to the base of the falls, a popular swimming hole. The name "Minnehana" has been spelled differently over the years. The name is derived from Longfellow's poem "Hiawatha" where the principal character is the girl Minnehaha, a name meaning "laughing water".

An impressive waterfall and probably closest from the center of Katoomba. Good views from the top. The trip down to the bottom is worth it. Looks like a nice place for a swim in summer.
