Wentworth Falls is most famous for its breath-taking views and scenic bushwalking tracks, the most popular one being the National Pass Trail. The Wentworth Falls Lake is a must-see attraction, with picnic grounds and barbeque facilities. Kids will enjoy swimming in the lake, playing on the playground and watching the wild ducks on the water. For some of the best mountain views Australia has to offer, be sure to check out the Wentworth Falls Lookout. The Charles Darwin Walk gives you the opportunity to follow the footsteps of the famous scientist, who visited the area in 1836. Don't forget to visit the Falls Gallery, which houses contemporary Australian art, and hosts the annual Kedumba Drawing Awards, usually announced in October.
While you're in town, make sure you have a meal at the multi-award-winning restaurant Canton Palace, which serves delicious Chinese and Asian cuisine. There are also plenty of cafes scattered around the area, including the Conservation Hut, which provides stunning views, and the Bakery Patisserie Schwarz, which is a German bakery, famous in this region. The Blue Mountains Cooking School gives you a chance to try your hand in the kitchen, and, at the end of the day, you can drop by d'Vine Cellars, to pick up a bottle of regional or imported wine.
Some interesting spots, nearby, include Kings Table, which is a 22,000 year old Aboriginal site, and Katoomba, where you can give canyoning, mountain biking, abseiling and/or rock climbing a go, if you dare. Wentworth Falls is 113km from the Sydney airport. You can catch a coach bus or train from the airport, but if you want to really explore the area, you're best off hiring a car.
