What to do in NSW: Leura Falls

Leura Falls.

Situated in the Blue Mountains, just a short drive (or really long walk if that's your thing) from the Three Sisters and Echo Point in the little town of Leura, is the beautiful natural waterfall and forest walk; Leura Falls. 

Regional New South Wales is my favourite part of the state in general. Towns that surround the city but are still far enough away from the hustle of the city life and often have access to natural paradise's, beaches and mountains. They're quiet and perfect for local tourists who just need a little bit of a getaway. 
Honestly, my goal is to visit as many beautiful regional towns in NSW as possible. The further away from Sydney, the better. If they have beaches and forests, I'm down. 

Recently, it was the Blue Mountains, Katoomba I visited and took full advantage of the mountain landscape and forest surroundings. 
If I were to move to NSW at any point, I'd love to live somewhere like there. 


What is Leura Falls?

Part of the Blue Mountains National Park, Leura Falls is a beautiful natural rainforest surrounding a large waterfall that spans the side of the mountain. 
There is a walking track through the forest alongside the waterfall and rivers for the adventurous to explore. Mixed with steep staircases and flat pathways, it's beautiful, relaxing and you can get your fitness on all at the same time. 

Seriously, it's a workout. 

The air is fresh, and if you're lucky, you may spot some wildlife trawling through the trees. There are multiple lookout points along the way, and a cute little picnic spot located at the beginning of the walk. The further you walk through, the closer you get to the mountainside where you can see the other side of the Echo Point gorge.  

It will only take a few short hours depending how long you take and how far you walk.

So it's a great little outing that won't take too long but is great for a little adventure outdoors. 
If you're looking to explore the natural habitats of New South Wales' ranges, this is one site you'll want to visit.
Take a camera, snap some pics and take a relaxing stroll through one of the few (mostly) untouched natural habitats of NSW. Bring a picnic and enjoy a peaceful lunch, waterfall-side. It's a great day trip that will leave you with a rich feeling of adventure the city won't give you. 

If you're feeling super adventurous, the walk through the Fall's spans through to Echo Point and the Three Sisters, so you can hit up all of the main scenic spots in one day. 
Which, is actually, what I did. 

10/10 would recommend.
