The Greater Blue Mountains has some of the most spectacular waterfalls that can be found around Sydney, with many of them easily accessed – often from multiple vantage points. Spend a day around Leura or Katoomba after there’s been some decent rain and you’re guaranteed to get some spectacular photos!
One of the most well-known and popular attractions in the Blue Mountains, the stunning Govetts Leap (also known as the Bridal Veil Falls) drops 180m in the valley. It can be viewed from a few cliff-top lookouts.
Grey Hat Falls cascades into the stunning and pristine Crayfish Pool along Kanuka Brook. The swimming hole and waterfall is reached by a short but steep walking track.
Boasting the second-highest drop of all the Blue Mountains waterfalls, Horseshoe Falls plunges off the cliffs at Blackheath into the valley below. It can be seen from a few lookouts along the top of the cliff.
A small waterfall along the Nature Track and Valley of the Waters Track in the Blue Mountains, Isobel Falls is best visited after some decent rain.
The main falls (Junction Falls) is a pictureseque, multi-tier waterfall; there's a second smaller waterfall a short distance downstream that you can walk behind.
A beautiful, secluded waterfall and swimming hole (after rain), Leslie Falls can only be reached via an off-track route along Lawson Ceeek.
A small but beautiful waterfall, Little Terrace Falls is next to the walking track between Terrace Falls and Bedford Falls in Hazelbrook.
