Wentworth Falls

Wentworth Falls is a small town within the Blue Mountains World Heritage National Park in Australia. It lies immediately east of Leura and Katoomba, and is a little quieter than its neighbours. It still has good facilities, great walks and views, and is still only a short journey from the main tourist centres of the mountains.

Get in

The town of Wentworth Falls is around 2-3km from the falls themselves.
