Imagine walking in the desert and finally reaching an oasis and enjoying a quick swim. That’s the joy you’d feel.

Under and Over Cliff Walk - Wentworth Falls

Wentworth Falls? Waterfalls? Yes, and there are plenty here.
There are many tracks to choose from in the Wentworth Falls area, but this one provides a loop around most of the terrain and passes the main waterfall sites along the way. Enjoy the cool refreshing flows of water as you make your way up and around the rocky terrain.

Echo Point to Leura Forest via Three Sisters and Giant Stairs loop – Katoomba

Hidden in plain sight from the tourists at Echo Point where the lookout for Three Sisters are located. There are walking tracks that go down from Echo Point, leading to the undergrowth of Leura Forest which packs a beautiful green hue embraced by the moss covered landscape. As this is a looping track, be prepared to walk all the way up the Giant Stairs!
