Wentworth Falls Lake

Wentworth Falls Lake was originally created by the damming of Jamison Creek to supply water for the steam railway. The Lake is now home to native and introduced waterfowl, native fish such as Gudgeons, and water bugs including freshwater crayfish, freshwater shrimp and dragonfly nymphs. It is also a popular picnic spot, with barbeque facilities and children’s play equipment. A one kilometre walk beside the Lake is easy grade and takes about 30 minutes.

Using locally quarried stone a group of local sculptors have created sandstone sculptures featuring the seed pods of plants native to the lake and each sculpture has been positioned close to the living plant that it relates to making exploration of the lake foreshore come to life.
