Summary: A relatively small but picturesque waterfall, Queens Cascades is on Jamison Creek just above Wentworth Falls.

The Queens Cascades is a small cascade along Jamison Creek, above the 187m tall Wentworth Falls which is further downstream, and below Weeping Rock. It’s relatively small with a drop of less than ten metres, but quite picturesque – especially after rain.

A photo from c. 1900 shows the small waterfall almost identical to how it looks today (Blue Mountains City Library, Local Studies Collection PF 1939).

The Undercliff Track crosses Jamison Creek via a set of stepping stones just below the cascade.

Just above the Queens Cascade are some smaller cascades along the creek.

Getting to Queens Cascades

The cascades are an 800m walk from the Wentworth Falls Picnic Area on Sir H Burrell Drive, and 600m from the Wentworth Falls Lookout. You’ll pass by the waterfall on the Overcliff-Undercliff Track walk (3.9km one-way) – or the 4-5km scenic Wentworth Falls scenic cliff-top loop (see map below).
