North Katoomba is a residential village north of the Katoomba town centre in the state of New South Wales, Australia in the City of Blue Mountains. It is home to Katoomba creek and also the "Minnehaha falls". Also known as "Yosemite Park" it is home to thousands of residents, and has its own local school and shops. There is also an Australia Post sorting facility, a local council depot and some other commercial developments. There are a number of parks and a local community gardens.

The area is surrounded by typical Australian bushland and sandstone cliffs. It was developed from the early 1900s and has been steadily increasing in population until the present day, with very little free land remaining. To the north are many kilometres of bush track. The tracks were popular with horse riders and motorbike riders but have since been closed down by council to anything but bushwalkers.
