A picturesque waterfall in Hazelbook along Terrace Falls Creek, Victor Falls drops into a very shallow, sandy pool in a shaded, ferny setting. You can’t swim here, but there are lots of shaded areas.
Originally called Woodford Falls, the waterfall was renamed after Victor Frederick Cecil Levitt, a local resident. The track to the waterfall was officially opened in April 1916:
Victor Falls, so named after the son of a local resident (now fighting for his King and country), rank as one of the prettiest of Mountain sights. It is situated on the southern side of the line, and is within a few minutes’ walking distance of the town, and the grades are very easy.Hazelbrook in The Blue Mountain Echo, Fri 28 Apr 1916
Getting to Victor Falls
Victor Falls is about 2km return from the end of Terrace Falls Road; the bushwalking track descends steeply at the end and requires a bit of scrambling. 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.
