The Charles Darwin Walk was closed in January 2020 after flooding severely damaged the track and took out some bridges.

The repair work on the Walk was planned across two stages. Stage One, the upper section from Wilson Park to Fletcher Street, equates to around two-thirds of Darwins Walk. This section is now OPEN.

Stage Two, the lower section, is more technically challenging and involves a complex re-design. It travels through an important area of Temperate Highland Peat Swamp on Sandstone, a nationally listed Endangered Ecological Community. As a result, repair work is still progressing, with the reopening expected in March/April 2025.

Less than five minutes stroll from Wentworth Falls Station, this 2.5k trail to the Falls is an easy trail through different eco-systems so wonderful fun for children and adults alike. If you can bear to be quiet, I saw many different types of birds. There are opportunities to sit on smooth rocks by the stream so take a picnic and make a day of it!

I found this path lovely. It’s an easy walk and with a creek running next to you and under you the whole time, it’s serene. Thoroughly recommended for novice nature lovers.

99% of tourists to the Blue Mountains head straight for Katoomba from Sydney. Katoomba is definitely the most touristy of the Blue Mountain towns with its cable cars, etc.

But we decided to do a more local experience when we visited the Blue Mountains and so we chose the town of Wentworth Falls. We left Sydney at 7:30am or so by train (opal card all the way) and arrived around 9:15-9:30 to Wentworth Falls. The town itself is small and cute with some restaurants, gift shops, etc. across from the train station. A 5 minute walk from there you enter a small park which leads to the start of the Charles Darwin Walk. The walk leads directly to the top of Wentworth Falls, and many other trailheads where you can do scenic overlooks or hikes to the middle or bottom of Wentworth Falls.

We managed to walk from the Wentworth to the bottom of Wentworth falls and back (via the Charles Darwin Path) in about 3.5 hours. This allowed us time to stop and hang out along the way.

The Charles Darwin Path itself was lovely. Not a lot of people around, it was well maintained, and interesting things to see along the way. It was interesting to read along the way about Darwin's visit to this spot (considering that Charles Darwin didn't spend much time in Australia at all).

It was an easy walk, almost flat throughout. We took an hour each way. Jamison Creek was serene and peaceful. Weeping Rocks falls was beautiful. You need hiking shoes because many parts are wet and can be slippery.

We started this walk at 8 in the morning to avoid the heat. The walk followed the river and we were treated to amazing birdsong and beautiful views all along the river. Made all the better as there were few other walkers so early in the morning. A highly recommended easy walk.

An easy relaxing walk that takes you to the top of the Wentworth Falls. You will be following in the footsteps of Charles Darwin. Weeping Rock is always a relaxing place to sit and take in the natural beauty. The view at top of Wentworth Falls is spectacular.
