About Lesmurdie Falls, Mundy Regional Park
This walk is particularly recommended in winter and spring when the rains swell Lesmurdie Brook which tumbles over the Darling Range Escarpment.
A list of walk trails below are available from here of varying degrees of difficulty, Including:
The Falls Trail. 640m return, Class 2, allow 45 min.
The Shoulder Trail. 1.5km return, Class 3, allow 1hr.
Lesmurdie Brook Loop. 1.5km loop, Class 2, allow 1 hr.
The Foot of the Falls Trail. 2km return, Class 3, allow 1hr.
The Valley Loop Trail. 3km return, Class 3, allow 2hrs.
Walking down the hill, the trail follows the brook until it reaches a bridge at the top of the falls. A lookout allows you to view the falls and, on a clear day, the flat land of the coastal plain sweeps the eye out over Perth city to Rottnest Island on the western horizon.
If you're feeling energetic, follow the trail down to the picnic area at the base of the hills. From here a short trail leads to the base of the falls. This is more like a waterfall in New Zealand than in Perth and is quite unique to the region. The lush vegetation grows where the bubbling brook hits the base of the waterfall.
The climb back up the hill to return to the car park is steep but short. Enjoy morning tea or lunch in the near by Kalamunda Village.

It gets very busy on the weekend with a coffee and donut van usually parked up. There is plenty of picnic areas and even areas to go swimming in the stream.
There are 3 different look out spots, both with great views of the Perth CBD in the distance.
