Wentworth Falls

We did our trip to Wentworth Falls in just one day and it was definitely worth the effort. I went with my girlfriend and my good friend and they both absolutely loved it. I wanted to take photos and just explore into the mountains, see what’s out there. The others kindly tagged along.

The train was only an hour and a half from Central Station, and we got there by 11.00am. The walk from the station to the start of the track wasn’t very long either. It involved walking through a park, then following the same road up to the start of the track.Wentworth Falls Without A Car (NSW),Sam Wilson, rocks, escarpment, valley, green

Blue Mountains Views

From the very beginning the Blue Mountains provided the goods. The clouds were so low that we were walking through them and looking out into the expansive forest landscape. Scenes like this you just can’t put into words.

We started walking down the track, taking about 1-2 hours to get to the main section of Wentworth Falls waterfall, which was enormous and stunningly beautiful. At this section you can walk into the water which is very refreshing after a hike down the mountain. One of the best parts was just looking up from under the waterfall and seeing the water falling towards me.Wentworth Falls Without A Car (NSW), Sam Wilson, long exposure, waterfall, pool, ferns

The track doesn’t end there though; it goes for another 2 or so hours taking in multiple lookouts and amazing vistas. We didn’t do the whole track this time as we had to get back to Sydney. However the adventure was unforgettable and I’d highly recommend it to others just wanting to a unique experience near Sydney.

Essential Gear 

  • A good pair of shoes to walk up and down the mountain
  • Water and snacks

How To Get There
