Started hiking from Wentworth falls to Vera falls and return. Lots of stairs but worth it. Lots of water falls to enjoy. Not many people, peaceful and quiet. Enjoyed the walk very much.

Having hiked all kinds of hikes from lowlands to highlands, this ranks in the top 5 for uniqueness, views, and fun features. Also very easily and quickly accessible from the city. Great Family Day.
