Listen to the cascading water at Wentworth Falls, see the maganificent views of the Jamison Valley at Jamison lookout are some of the natural wonders of the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park.
The many waterfalls in the area gave Wentworth Falls an enchanting name -Valley of the Waters. There are three well-known waterfalls, Empress, Silvia and Lodore Falls.
Empress falls drop 30 metres into a deep pool where in summer visitors and locals can swim and cool down in the heat. The water is quite deep so the water is cold. Abseiling is also very poplar sport at Empress Canyon.
Silvia falls are on the The Valley of The Waters Creek. They are below Empress Falls, and above Lodore Falls, Red Rock Falls, Flat Rock Falls, Britannia Falls, and way down in the valley – Vera Falls.
Lodore Falls are a lovely set of falls on the Valley of the Waters Creek. There is a staircase on one side of the waterfall and crossing the bottom there are stepping stones with handrail offer visitors views from many angles.
