Summary: A small waterfall along Bedford Creek in Hazelbrook, Pyramid Falls cascades down a series of rock tiers in a rainforest grotto.

Pyramid Falls is one of the smallest waterfalls in the Terrace Falls Reserve, formed by Bedford Creek tumbling over a series of rock shelves. Ferns surround the waterfall, which is in a small grotto just off the walking track.

Named after the nearby Pyramid Rocks, the waterfall is also called Denham Falls.

Getting to Pyramid Falls

The quickest way to reach the Pyramid Falls is via the Terrace Falls Firetrail from Valley Road; it’s about 750m to Carpark 1 and then 250m down the bushwalking track towards Bedford Pool. The waterfall is also part of a 5km Terrace Falls Loop which takes in four picturesque waterfalls and a couple of swimming holes. It’s best done after some decent rain. The start of the walk is 1.6km from Hazelbrook railway station, which is 18km (18min drive) from Katoomba or 88km (1:10min) west of Sydney.
