Valley of the Waters, Wentworth Falls

Home > Sydney > Walks | National Parks
Published April 12th 2012
For a truly magical escape into nature, the walk through Valley of the Waters in Wentworth Falls is one of the best.

Empress Falls
Valley of the Waters, Wentworth Falls


Beautiful, calming waterfalls flow down the valley alongside the walk, culminating with the magnificent Empress Falls. There are also stunning views of the surrounding valleys. The walk is in shade most of the day thanks to the cliffs, and the cool waters make it a great trip even in hot weather.

Start by making your way to the Conservation Hut. It's easy by car, just turn off the Great Western Highway at Falls Road and follow the signs. If taking public transport just get off the train at Wentworth Falls and a bus will take you right there on weekends - check out www.bmbc.com.au for timetables.

The walk is well-worn and signposted thanks to the helpful work of the National Parks, so it's almost impossible to get lost. The return journey is quite a steep climb, so you'll need to be reasonably fit and healthy - but don't let that discourage you too much from experiencing this beautiful corner of the world, bushwalking is a great way to improve your fitness. Make sure to bring lots of water, a picnic and your camera!
