Wentworth Falls Shuttle

Now included with your Explorer Bus ticket

See the very best that our exquisitely picturesque Blue Mountains National Park has to offer with our exclusive Blue Mountains Explorer Bus Wentworth Falls shuttle service!

Offering spectacular vistas and some of the best bushwalks in the world, Wentworth Falls remains an absolute favourite with countless visitors to our pristine World Heritage Listed National Park. What’s more, all of this can be experienced via our convenient Blue Mountains Explorer Bus pass.

The Wentworth Falls shuttle service operates in a separate bus to the red double decker buses and departs STOP 1 at 11:55am, STOP 21 at 12.05pm, and between 3:00pm and 4:30pm a regular shuttle also from STOP 21.

Whether you choose to complete the longer National Pass Walk, which takes you past refreshing swimming holes such as Empress Falls, Wentworth Falls themselves and around to the skilfully crafted iconic steep sandstone staircase, or alternatively, you opt for the shorter Undercliff and Overcliff Walks, we can guarantee you an impressive experience of ever changing breath-taking scenery.

Take a self-prepared picnic and enjoy it whilst sitting beside gently cascading water or at one of the awe-inspiring viewing platforms. Alternatively, enjoy the seasonal house specials offered at the award winning Conservation Hut which is nestled amongst the tree tops and easily accessible from the Valley Road drop off. Our shuttle service every afternoon allows you ample time to explore multiple lookouts or tackle one of the world class bushwalks.

If you wish to extend your stay, you can choose to meander back along the memorable Charles Darwin Walk, with the sparkling stream keeping constant company beside you, until you reach Wentworth Falls Village and train station. Offering a choice of excellent cafes and restaurants, you could extend your visit into the evening, hop on the train back to Katoomba or simply return directly from here to Sydney.
