Take in the views from Jamison lookout, then follow the main path beside the road to Wentworth Falls lookout. From here, it’s around 200 steps down to Fletchers lookout, for magnificent views of Wentworth Falls’ famous waterfall plunging 100m into the valley.
Continue down to the top of the falls, which cascade into a shallow pool crossed by stepping stones. When you’ve had your fill, backtrack for 100m to the junction with Weeping Rock circuit. This gentle track is not as steep or busy as the main track, making it a family friendly option to loop back to the picnic area.
Photographers will love Weeping Rock, where Jamison Creek spills over a rock overhang. On a hot summer’s day, it’s a beautiful spot to cool off your feet in the shallow rock pools.
Take the metal stairs beside Weeping Rock and meander along the tranquil creek. Keep your eyes peeled for freshwater crayfish hiding in the waters. At the junction with Charles Darwin walk, head uphill to your left, to reconnect with the main track to the picnic area.
Weeping Rock is easily combined with the views from Princes Rock. For a longer walk, try Overcliff-Undercliff walking track or follow in the footsteps of the famous naturalist along Charles Darwin walk.
