Tucked away next to Katoomba Falls Park, Katoomba Cascades can be easily accessed via a short walk. The moderate, grade 3 walk heads down a set of stairs that led to the Cascades' base. Here you will be greeted with sheltered spots and a seat bench, a set of stepping stones and a small footbridge.
The stairs leading down to the Cascades and Lookouts
From Katoomba Cascades, the short walks lead to the Duke & Duchess of York Lookout and the Cliff View Lookout, where breathtaking views of Jamison Valley can be admired.
You can retrace your steps (10-15minutes walking time), or from the Lookouts the walk continues to the Upper Katoomba Falls Lookout, Witches Leap, then to Vera's Grotto, and the Middle and Lower Katoomba Falls Lookouts. This walk takes around 2-2.5 hours.
The Boardwalk leading to the spectacular Lookouts as well as the Prince Henry Cliff Walks
The small footbridge offers views of the Katoomba Falls from one side, and beautiful Kedumba River views from the other side.
Kedumba River is a 20km long perennial river that rises at Lake Catalina in Katoomba. The river starts from a small creek that flows through parkland in the west of Katoomba's town centre, before dropping into the Jamison Valley via Katoomba Falls (one of the most scenic waterfalls in the region).
