Historic Rocket Point lookout track boasts some of the best waterfall views in Blue Mountains National Park. Ideal for bushwalkers who are short on time but hungry for adventure, this moderate track overlaps Wentworth Falls track and can be combined with the iconic National Pass.

Starting at Wentworth Falls picnic area, follow the path down to the stepping stones at Queens Cascade, the upper lip of the multi-tiered Wentworth Falls waterfall. Crossing the stones, the picturesque track, lined with ferns and mosses, ascends steeply and gives way to heath, which erupts with colour in the spring. Look for vibrant rainbow lorikeets and rosellas amongst the lush green forest.

Reaching the lookout, unpack a picnic and drink in the scenic waterfall and sweeping valley views. Head back the same way, or join one of this area's many other tracks that meet at the picnic area, such as Overcliff-Undercliff track.
