A feast for the senses, this walk features forests, waterfalls and breathtaking clifftop views, near Wentworth Falls, Blue Mountains National Park. The short yet challenging Den Fenella walking track is a perfect introduction to the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park.

Start your walk at Wentworth Falls picnic area, before descending steeply through magnificent rainforest, where dappled sunlight filters through the lush canopy. The track winds through a deep gorge filled with tree ferns as it follows Den Fenella creek. Keep an eye out for the wildflowers in the warmer months. The rare rock sprengelia, with delicate white flowers, grows on the nearby sandstone ledges.

You'll cross the creek on stepping stones before coming to Den Fenella lookout. Soak up the majestic valley views to the soothing sounds of the falls, as Den Fenella Creek cascades over the clifftop. Once you've enjoyed the cool mountain air, retrace your steps to Wentworth Falls picnic area and unpack the hamper for a well earned feed.
