One of the most beautiful hikes that the Blue Mountains has to offer. Unknown to many Sydneysiders this hidden gem is a place with magnificent waterfalls, dramatic rocky escarpments and spectacular scenery.
Explore ferny grottos, swimming holes and see a series of cascades including beautiful Empress Falls where water gushes from a narrow gorge. You will be able to stop for a picnic lunch at the base of a waterfall where you can listen for the distinctive calls of the whip-birds and lyrebirds.
Soak up the atmosphere as you jump across stepping stones to cross creeks and stand in awe taking in magnificent views of the falls and mountain scenery.
Professional bushwalking guide, snack pack to enjoy during your walk and a delicious lunch.
This is a half day hike between 3.5-4 hours duration.

Meet at Conservation Hut, Fletcher Street, Wentworth Falls. Driving up the highway from Sydney, turn left at the second set of traffic lights into Falls Road. Continue along Falls Road for 1.25kms and turn right into Fletcher Street. Drive 750 metres to the end of Fletcher Street and you'll find the Conservation Hut.
