Please note

  • Please take care and stay on the track as there are hidden cliff edges in this area of the park. Children should be supervised.
  • This track has sections of steep stairs that are not suitable for prams.
  • Wentworth Falls picnic area and nearby walks can be busy places on weekends and holidays, so parking may be limited.
  • While water is available at the picnic area, it's a good idea to bring some extra water with you.

This short but steep walk from Wentworth Falls picnic area is well worth the effort. Follow the level path past Jamison and Wentworth lookouts before descending around 200 steps to the cliff-edge Fletchers lookout. Marvel at the waterfall that gives Wentworth Falls its name, as it plunges 100m to the valley floor.

From here, it's a few more minutes down steps to the very top of the Falls, where Jamison Creek cascades into a shallow pool to one side and the magnificent Jamison Valley opens out on the other.

Make your way back via the same route, or continue for a minute along National Pass to take in exhilarating views and wonder at this incredible feat of engineering, before backtracking to the picnic area. If you're feeling energetic, combine Wentworth Falls track with the short Weeping Rock circuit, the varied Undercliff track or historic Princes Rock lookout track.
