NPWS list the National Pass walk at Wentworth Falls as one of the state’s best one day walks.
Built into the side of the cliff, the National Pass is a spectacular walking track offering unrivalled views of the many natural wonders of the World Heritage-listed Blue Mountains National Park.
Your journey begins at Conservation Hut where you can grab a map, information, water and other supplies for the walk. When you reach Queen Victoria lookout you’ll marvel at the valley and sandstone cliffs, which feel more dramatic by the roar of the waterfalls below. As you enter the Valley of the Waters you’ll be greeted by a set of beautiful waterfalls, including Empress, Silvia and Lodore Falls. You’ll then reach the historic Grand Stairway, built by hand in the early 1900’s – as you’re making your way up, spare a thought for the men who built it using picks and shovels, with a bit of dynamite for good measure, more than 100 years ago. The walk will then take you to Wentworth Falls and Jamison lookouts, both offering magnificent views. You can stay at the Wentworth Falls picnic area for a picnic or barbecue lunch or walk back to Conservation Hut for a hot cuppa.
There is really so much to see along this walk, so be sure to pack your camera to capture the views and wildlife you spot along the way.
