Wentworth Falls Day Walk

  • Wemtworth Falls Railway Station 10-11 Station St Wentworth Falls, NSW, 2782 Australia (map)

A full day exploring around Wentworth Falls in the Blue Mountains.

This day will suit people with good fitness and recent walking experience. We hike 10 kilometres around Wentworth Falls, with a lunch break along the way. The day will include steep climbs and descents on roughly formed walking track and stone steps. We start and finish at Wentworth Falls Railway Station. 

This event will NOT suit people brand new to hiking or those who have not been doing some long walks in preparation. Please consider this walk medium/hard. Over the day we will ascend more than 1 kilometre, so jelly legs are pretty much guaranteed.

Meet your Hike Out friends outside Wentworth Falls Station in Station Street, ready to depart on foot at 9:30am. The train leaving Central at 7:22am arrives in Wentworth Falls at 9:14am.

We hike a 10km loop including Charles Darwin Walk, National Pass, Conservation Hut and Lillians Glen before returning to Wentworth Falls Railway Station in the afternoon. Trains depart toward the city every half hour from 3:36pm.
