If you happened to be in Katoomba or Leura region of the Blue Mountains on the wet and rainy day – don’t miss Leura Cascades, if you are lucky, they will be filled with water and present a truly nice view.
Easy to find and access, these popular falls are located along the Prince Henry Cliff Walk – probably the most walked trail in the Blue Mountains National Park.
Even if you are not a up for the bushwalk, you still can get very close to Leura Cascades from a picnic area conveniently located nearby – it is only a few hundred meters of the well maintained trail from there.
Picnic area is located near the Chelmsford Bridge and can be accessed from the Cliff Drive.
As it often happens with relatively flat falls, Leura Cascades consist of two parts – upper and lower, lower Leura Cascades are the most interesting.
Although Leura Cascades are the most important reason to visit this place, it is not the only waterfall you can enjoy in this area – there are two more waterfalls very close to the picnic area.
One is just next to the trail head and flows under the Chelmsford Bridge.
Another unnamed waterfall is on the other side of the car park, opposite the trail head to Leura Cascades.
But if you are happy to consider any falling flow of water as a waterfall and don’t care how high it is… there are plenty of smaller ones.
