So many beautiful waterfalls in the bm but these are some of the best cascades in the area. They fall beautifully down the mountainside and are easily accessed for old folk and kids. An amazing view at the end to bridal veil falls. Probably some...More

Poorly sign posted. We found what might have been the upper cascades. Other tourists asked us for directions too. The whole information board was empty. The upper cascades (let’s call them that) were pretty.

Came here as it was a stop on the Explorer Bus. It took us a 35 minutes round trip. My son managed it fine. It just took me a little longer to climb up. Not so much cascading now because of low rainfalls but still...More

We had been walking in the Blue Mountains for a few days and decided to add a walk to Leura Cascades. The Cascades are beautiful and worth a walk. Get ready for some stairs up and down but it is worth it! Take some time...More
