Valley of the Waters picnic area, just near Conservation Hut in Blue Mountains National Park, is a fabulous picnicking spot for family and friends wanting an extra helping of scenic views with their lunch. With plenty of active options and nearby wheelchair-accessible facilities, it’s a no-fuss day trip that all the family will love.
You might be serenaded by bellbirds as you unroll the picnic rug among the scribbly gums. If you’re feeling energetic, there’s the heart-pumping Wentworth Pass loop walking track. However, if a leisurely stroll is more your style, walk along the cliff top to Wentworth Falls lookout for sensational waterfall views.
After an afternoon of exploring the enchanting falls of Valley of the Waters, you might be tempted to round up the gang for a delicious Devonshire tea at the ‘Hut’.
