Wentworth Falls is a historic in town in the Blue Mountains. Wentworth Falls will take you around 100 kilometres to drive west of Sydney. It offers stunning views over the Jamison Valley and boasts the magnificent waterfall for which it is named. It has been a tourist destination for many years. If you are looking for a good selection of walking tracks in the Blue Mountains, then Wentworth Falls is the place to be. It offers many bushwalking tracks with varying degrees of difficulty. Each track boasts a spectacular view of the Blue Mountains (Jamison Valley) as well as beautiful waterfalls that have been the popular subject of many amateur and professional photographers. So, it doesn’t really matter which track you take, the question is how much time have you got to go for a bushwalk? There’s a big board at the Jamison Valley Lookout at the entrance which will tell you how long each Track takes plus or minus 15% percent depending on your level of fitness and factor in picture-taking stops.

Whilst bushwalking, I was quite surprised to see a medium-sized brown snake in the Princess Rock Track given that the track could get really busy with bushwalkers. The more surprising part was I didn’t die from freaking out. Immediately after the initial shock and the hyper-ventilation in my head, we calmly waited until the snake slowly crawled away. The poisonous snake certainly didn’t stop us from continuing with our mission to burn the calories from the big dinner that was consumed the night before by doing a couple of hours of bushwalking. Although the thought of another snake showing up in the track kept sending shivers down my spine. Made me walk extra fast.
