Weeping Rock is an often missed gorgeous 15ft waterfall located within the Leura Cascades, approximately 1 minute from the bottom of Bridal Veil Falls.

Begin your journey to Weeping rock by parking at the Leura Cascades picnic area off Cliff Drive. Once you have parked your car at the Picnic area you will see a cave-like shelter containing toilet facilities. Located right beside the toilets is an information board, pay attention to the location of Bridal Veil as Weeping Rock is not shown on this map.  This is where your hike begins along the Leura Cascades walking track, you will pass a few waterfalls along this track such as Chelmsford Bridge which will be the first cascade located on your left. Following this path downhill along the stream you will come to an intersection with Prince Henry Cliff Walk’ just before a footbridge, continue straight. From this intersection, there will be a sign saying Leura cascades, down the steps, continue straight.

Continue straight until you reach a lookout of the magnificent Jamison Valley at the top of the Bridal Veil Falls, take a moment to stop and admire the view as the hike now begins to get steep with many stairs.  After the lookout continue straight up the metal staircase and proceed along the cliff line on the track until you come to an intersection with a wooden post on your left marked  Fern Bower track. Turn left at the wooden sign from here the track descends steeply into the rainforest. You will descend down 3 steep metal staircases, watch your steps as they are quite narrow. Continuing straight within the rainforest you will reach Bridal Veil Falls within the amphitheatre, continuing to go downstream on the footpath on your right about 400 meters and there will be a metal bridge. Look to your left and that stunning little spot is called Weeping Rock Falls.

Please Note:

This walk is not pet-friendly or great for those with knee and back issues due to the severity of the steep second and ascend.
Please also bring a bag with you on this hike to take your rubbish with you as the area is not cleaned by staff/rangers. Proper hiking shoes are a must as after rainfall can get very slippery and the track is often filled with mud.

    thank you Nina, I’ve been to the Blue Mountains a number of times but seemed to have missed this beautiful location. I’ll have to make sure not to miss this hidden place on my next visit in October!
