Wentworth Falls .. the first drop by 

The amazing Wentworth Falls in the Blue Mountains drops over this cliff for more than 100 metres before it drops over another cliff into the Jamison Valley.

There is rarely a lot of water in these falls but the rock structure is pretty special & the setting spectacular.

For those who don’t know the area, you can walk down the cliff to the right of this image & across the mid section of the falls (bottom of this photo) & walk around the cliff to the Valley of the Waters where you see Sylvia Falls … featured below.

Wentworth Falls is in the Blue Mountains National Park in NSW, Australia.

Photographed with a Canon 400D.

The Blue Mountains are my favourite spot at the moment.

  • Thanks Donna. The feet were firmly planted in the muddy soil for this one.
