Adventure to Wentworth Fall!

Want to unplug? hungry for adventure? well, then you are in the right place. So, Wentworth fall is a small but a beautiful town within Blue Mountain. From St Marys, It took roughly 50mins ( train).  It is pretty cold due to the windy weather however, to warm yourself up, there is a small cafe called ‘Conditorei Patisserie Schwarz.”Conditorei Patisserie Schwarz is cosy with the best hot chocolate and croissants.

No mention, it has amazing service.

I normally don’t like salad but this was amazing and it was complimentary on the house

And, oh before I forget, there is an antique shop for those who are interested.  And, like me if you ever dreamed of living in a small town where everyone knows everyone, then this is the perfect place for you.

Anyways, this is not even the best part, the best part include things such as seen in the following images.

Okay! so, I’m aware that not everyone is electrified by waterfalls or nature but bear with me.

So, the walk will take around 1-2 hours depending on how slow you walk and how often you stop. The first time my friend Ateny and I visited the place, it took us 2 hours. Essentially, because we are both aspiring photographer of some sort. Furthermore, we sat down to meditate and listen to the sound of streams of water.

I always wanted a pic like this and looking at this makes me feel at peace and yes this was staged and probably taken million times. However, we did mediate without involving the camera.

However, when I visited it with my community youth group, it took us only 1 and half hour. We did stop to take pictures but we moved fairly quickly and most of us were fed up with the rainy feel of the place.

Rewind to the beginning……

Our Journey began at St marys station where I lost Ateny for about  30 and we missed dozen trains.  However, since none of us is about that quitting life style, we pushed through and at 11:30 caught a train to Wentworth fall station.

There is no direct train to Wentworth fall so, we had to change in Emu Plains. While we were waiting for our train we decided to go and get some brekky.  In the process of getting a brekky we managed to get lost so, we turned back and decided to get brekky at Wentworth fall. As you have seen in the beginning of this blog , it turned out pretty well.

Moving forward, after our brekky we began our walk around 1:00-1:20

So, the walk began at Wilson Park which is located on the left side of the Great Western Highway.

However, If you are starting your walk from the Wentworth Fall station, you will have to cross over to the post office using the pedestrian crossing.

Once you are on the other side, there is a map which will show you the way to go or Just use your GPS.

Essentially, you will have to walk toward the Great Western highway and cross to the other side from the light. Once you are on the other side, you will have to walk past the bus stop to Wilson Park where the picture above was taken.

From Wilson Park, you just have to follow the footpath which will connect you to another foot path and lead you to Fletchers street.

Approximately it will take you 10-15 minutes to get to Fletchers street (walking). If you do decide to drive, you can drive to the conservation hut where you will find parking, bathroom and cafe/restaurant.

At Fletchers street, turn left and walk down the street. There should be a sign pointing you toward Fletchers street, you have to walk all the way down to the end of the street and from there you will find a little walk way leading to the Darwin track.

At the Darwin track, you will find a water stream which will continue all the way to the end of the track.

The experience is highly recommended for those who want to unplug or to push themselves outside their comfort zone. Furthermore, it can be a spiritual journey for those who want to renew their mind.

And, the good thing about this track is that you don’t have to necessarily complete the whole walk, you can just walk to the Darwin track and find a tree by the water and mediate or seat in silence.

It is really important for us whether a believer or not to quiet our spirit and find inner peace or just escape from this busy modern norm.

xoxo little explorer!
