About Wentworth Falls

Wentworth Falls is one of the major villages in the Blue Mountains. It is known for its magnificent scenery, charm and bushwalking tracks. Originally it was called Weatherboard after a weatherboard hut built in 1814. In 1879 that the name was changed to Wentworth Falls in honour of William Charles Wentworth, who, along with Blaxland and Lawson, succeeded in the first crossing of the Blue Mountains in 1813.
In 1826 William Boyles built an inn that became known as the ‘Weatherboard Inn'. In 1836 Charles Darwin stopped briefly at the Inn, as did numerous other famous travellers.

Wentworth Falls Lake has swimming and a picnic area. The surrounding Blue Mountains National Park also provides numerous picnic spots. Wentworth Falls is an ideal location for introducing the family to bush walking. From Wentworth Falls Picnic Area, a short 1 km walk to Princes Rock Lookout provides magnificent views of the Falls, Jamison Valley and Kings Tableland. Longer walks will take you into the valley below. The bird life around the Falls is prolific. The National Parks and Wildlife Service have prepared a booklet that details the walking tracks in the area.

On Blaxland Road the golf enthusiast can enjoy a round on the 18-hole golf course located at the Wentworth Falls Country Club.

Festivals

Wentworth Falls hosts several festivals, including the Wentworth Falls Lake Regatta in February, the Autumn Festival in April, and the Wentworth Falls Public School Art and Craft Show in May.
