These are (arguably) the best waterfalls in and around Sydney… “Best” is of course a somewhat subjective term: these waterfalls were chosen based on being the most picturesque, especially after there’s been some rain. Many involve a short bushwalk and a few are a bit off-the-beaten track.

There are many more waterfalls throughout Sydney that are worth a visit – especially after there’s been some decent rain!

Bridal Veil Falls in Leura is a spectacular multi-tiered waterfall in the Blue Mountains, especially after heavy rain. There are viewing points both above and below the falls.
