I’m guessing that most people headed to Wentworth Falls aren’t going to intentionally try and find this waterfall, but if you’re on the Charles Darwin Walk, you might find this smaller waterfall. The walk is actually very beautiful. It was really enjoyable on this early May morning. There was some frost on the plants as I started.
The falls themselves are pretty close to Wentworth Falls. The trail starts in the town, and then ends at Wentworth Falls. Right before reaching the crest of Wentworth Falls, you’ll find this waterfall.
- From the Wentworth Falls train platform, climb up the stairs and head left into the town.
- This got a little bit confusing. You’ll see a number of shops in front of you. Head down any of the streets to the right of you that run perpendicular to these shops. You should end up at the main highway 32.
- From there, look for a sign indicating the trail that leads to Wentworth Falls. It’s called the Charles Darwin Walk, and once you find it (near a children’s park), it’s a pretty easy and enjoyable walk.
- As you get near the falls, you do begin to descend toward the falls. Follow the many different signs to see the different viewpoints available.
- Head back the way you came. There’s another way to get back, but it led me more out of the way than I expected. Overall, it’s about a 3 hour hike, and it’s about 3.5 miles, I think.
Accessibility: 7/10 (easy/moderate)
Hike: 3.5 miles or so round-trip
