Charles Darwin walk

Natural Attractions

Follow in the footsteps of the famous naturalist, Charles Darwin, who walked this popular track in 1836. Starting from Wilson Park, today’s visitors can stroll the boardwalk and bush track through open forest, shrub, and hanging swamps to the national park boundary, where the walk meets Weeping Rock loop.
Along the way, Jamison Creek’s rock pools and cascades are tranquil spots to cool your feet on a hot day. Bird watchers should keep an eye out for honeyeaters, shrub wrens, and the raucous black cockatoos that can’t resist the native banksia trees.
From the park boundary, it’s only 400 metres to Wentworth Falls via picturesque Weeping Rock, or 15 minutes to Wentworth Falls picnic area. Spend some time exploring the many walks and lookouts in the park, including Fletchers lookout, that offer incredible views of the waterfall and vast Jamison Valley, before retracing your steps back along the walk or taking Falls Road from Wentworth Falls picnic area back to town.
