Wentworth Falls is another village that offers amazing views of valleys and richly coloured mountains.
Wentworth Falls is worth visiting and doing a few bush works.
Things to see and do.
- I would recommend starting your walk from the fletchers street carpark. These tracks have beautiful grand views and this is where you will find the popular Wentworth Falls waterfall.
This walk is short and steep so take your time however the 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. This is where you will find the beautiful waterfalls. Once you have reached this point you can continue 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.
- One of my favourite cafe's is the Conservation Hut which is at the beginning of the bushwalking track in fletchers street . The meals are simple but worth going to. On a nice day, I love sitting on the balcony while enjoying a meal and taking in some amazing views. On a cold and misty day you can't beat the fire place and a nice cup of tea.

Wentworth Falls doesn't have a some shopping strip that Katoomba or Leura have however it dose have some amazing cafe and bakery. I highly recommend the Bakery Patisserie Schwarz in Station Street, Wentworth Falls. They are well know in the area and make some of the most delicious pastries in the mountains.
Wentworth Falls Lake in Sinclair Street has a wonderful picnic area with toilets and a playground. There is also a walking track around the lake.
Wentworth Falls is 95 km from Sydney via the Great Western Highway.
