Conservation Hut precinct upgrade

The Conservation Hut precinct in Wentworth Falls is a busy destination, especially on weekends and holidays as visitors enjoy the heritage walking tracks, escarpment views, canyoning and the Conservation Hut café.

The plan

We aim to:

  • redesign and resurface the existing carpark to increase the number of parking spaces
  • construct accessible parking with access to amenities, Conservation Hut cafe and new viewing deck
  • replace the existing toilet block with new amenities, an accessible toilet and change room facilities (for canyoners)
  • install a viewing deck for all to enjoy the view to Mount Solitary and the Jamison Valley
  • upgrade the picnic facilities and pathways.

The timeline

The construction is planned to start Monday 2 May and finish by September 2022. The Fletcher St turnaround, toilets, carpark and lookout area will be closed during the construction work. Safe access to walking tracks will be provided if they are open. All closures will be available on the park alerts and closures webpage for Blue Mountains National Park.
