Summary: The Katoomba Cascades is a small and very easy-to-reach waterfall, between Scenic World and Echo Point. Best visited after decent rain.

The Katoomba Cascades are along the Kedumba River, upstream of the much higher Katoomba Falls. The small waterfall cascades down a natural amphitheatre, surrouded by rainforest.
