Summary: One of the best Wentworth Falls lookouts, the fenced Princes Rock Lookout offers some great views of the waterfall and Jamison Valley.

One of many cliff-top vantage points at Wentworth Falls, Princes Rock Lookout is (arguably) the best lookout. The short bushwalk to the fenced platform avoids the worst of the crowds (Jamison Lookout and Wentworth Falls Lookout near the carpark can get pretty busy) – and you get great valley and waterfall views.

Directly east is Wentworth Falls – the highest waterfall in the Blue Mountains – and just above the main falls you can see the people on the walking track and smaller Queens Cascades. The waterfall flows all year, but is most impressive after some heavy rain.

Looking south-west over down Jamison Creek and the Jamison Valley is a nice view of Mount Solitary in the distance.

Getting to Princes Rock Lookout

The lookout is 1km return from the Wentworth Falls Picnic Area, at the end of Sir H Burrell Drive, which is about 3.2km from Wentworth Falls village and station. It’s best visited as part of the 4-5km scenic Wentworth Falls scenic cliff-top loop (see map below).
