Wentworth Falls’ National Pass is an iconic walking track in the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains. On this 4.5hr bushwalk we’ll explore this beautiful environment, walking below the cliff line. Immerse yourself in the changing and spectacular landscapes along the way. We'll pass towering sandstone cliffs, eucalyptus forest and ancient rainforest. Marvel at the fact that every metre we descend represents roughly 1 million years in geological time. As you climb out past the Valley of the Waters you’ll be greeted by a set of beautiful waterfalls, including Empress, Silvia and Lodore Falls. 

This special walk requires a reasonable degree of fitness. Wear sturdy enclosed shoes and practical walking clothes. Remember to pack extra water, lunch, snacks, a hat and sunscreen.
