South Lawson Waterfalls

The waterfalls on this popular walk at Lawson in the Blue Mountains, were looking great after recent heavy rain. Unfortunately a bridge over the creek had been washed away, but as we saw stockpiles of sandstone blocks near the track, I expect repairs to the track will not be too far away.

Cataract Falls, Lawson

I have had lunch at Federal Falls before in the summer, but it was too cool and shady on this occasion, so we climbed further up the hill and stopped for lunch there.

The waterfalls circuit can be completed by returning to Lawson along Honour Avenue, or by walking along fire trails and roads to Hazelbrook, as our group did.

This walk can also be extended to join the Terrace Falls walk at Hazelbrook.
