brief history ...
Wentworth Falls are located in the Blue Mountains region, about 65 kilometers
west of Sydney NSW
. The volatile eucalyptus oil is causing scenery to appear in a bluish haze hence the name Blue Mountains.
The Blue Mountains form a natural barrier and many people tried to cross them. Until 1813 no attempt was successful and were considered by many impassable.
In 1813, explorers Gregory Blaxland, William Lawson, and William Charles Wentworth crossed the range by following the mountain ridges. They reached what is now called Wentworth Falls on Sunday 22nd May 1813. Two years later the first road over the Blue Mountains was build.

The scenery is magnificent and you will find many lookouts and photographic opportunities.
The height of the waterfall is impressive but the volume of the water falling is far from even large. Even so, it is worth visiting the place.
