Katoomba Falls, NSW. A Hidden Treasure.

How Tall is a Tall Waterfall?


Start at the Katoomba Falls Kiosk & walk down a little way staying on top of the cliffs. Checked World of Waterfalls to find how tall Katoomba Falls is but it didn’t say. They were right though, that cloud & lack of rain can be a problem here. That’s why the really keen photographers are out in the pouring rain!

There’s a lookout out not far from the Katoomba Falls Kiosk but the best view of Katoomba Falls, the Three Sisters and the Scenic Skyway is from Vaniman’s Lookout on the Katoomba Falls Round Walk. Follow the signs or take a map. Wild Walks has the track info. Another website, World Waterfalls has the height as 244m and it’s classified as a 3 tiered. Serious stuff.


If you’ve been to Katoomba or the Falls then you’ll realise how tall Sutherland Falls in New Zealand is at 580m! See my last blog for details. World Waterfalls has Sutherland Falls in the top ten best waterfalls anywhere. It’s rated as the world’s 10th tallest on World of Waterfalls. It’s hard to get an idea of scale from the pictures.

NO SCONES TODAY, not even at Solitary Kiosk. There had been sleet the previous day and a storm was brewing so we Hi-tailed it down to Wentworth Falls instead and managed to get out to the Princes Rock Lookout ahead of the storm.
