What you need to know

Popular picnic spot but also so much more, Leura Cascades is highlighted by its impressive and beautiful waterfall that serves as an idyllic backdrop for enjoying some relaxation. The Cascades are accessible from the town of Leura both on-foot via a walking path that offers spectacular views and via buses that service the area, and the sheer lushness of the greenery on display here is even more magical if there's been recent rainfall.

Wonderful vistas and sounds of birdlife round out the experience here, and it's possible to access nearby lookout points such as Echo Point for views of the Three Sisters for a wonderful combined walk. There's even a signature toilet block that has been built to resemble a carved-out boulder that blends into the landscape around - a lovely little touch. Plenty of shade offers spots for relaxing while the sound of running water makes for an incredibly relaxing atmosphere surrounded by a combination of nature and serenity that makes this one of the top things to do in the Blue Mountains - all for absolutely free.
