Walking and driving instructions


The car park at Bridal Veil Falls has all sorts of facilities, including Information Centre, gift shop, toilets and picnic tables.

From the parking it`s less than 1 minute walk to the valley` lookout offering a first view of the falls from a distance (to your right). From here follow Bridal Veil Falls Lookout track (the sign says 15 minutes; don’t be confused, it is a way TO lookout, not including the way back). The track gently descents to the waterfall` top lookout via lots of stairs Wichita offers an excellent viiew of the top of the Falls. You can see Horseshoe Falls from a distance.

Return via the same route. Total walking time is about 40 minutes (15min TO waterfall, and 25min BACK).

It is possible to walk to the falls` base - a steep descend takes roughly 1hr return, butt totally worths it. 

Govett`s Leap is a type of waterfall which can dry out completely. Best time to visit - after a descent rain (which can happen quite often, even when there is no rain in Sydney).
