Cool Climate, Hot Scenery

You have now reached the Upper Blue Mountains. The climate is somewhat cooler and the spectacular cliff-ringed Jamison Valley forms the village's southern border.

Weatherboard Hut

The first commercial establishment in the Blue Mountains was probably Cox's Weatherboard Hut store, opened here in 1815; less than a year after the completion of the road & later expanded to become Weatherboard Inn. The area was known as Weatherboard for many years before the name was changed to Wentworth Falls.

National Pass, Wentworth Falls, Blue Mountains Work on National Pass commenced in 1890, but was stalled by the problem of negotiating the cliffs. A Captain Murray was eventually lowered over the cliff by rope to survey the route of the stairs, then 5 men employed to build them. The pass was opened between 1906 and 1908.
After descending past the Wentworth Falls, bushwalkers ascend via the beautiful Valley of the Waters.
