About Serpentine Falls Walk Trail, Serpentine
A one hour drive from Perth will take you to the iconic Serpentine Falls, making the Walk Trail an ideal weekend outing for families. The optional climb to the viewing platform offers a beautiful vintage point over the Falls and surrounded forest. The finest displays of wildflowers are in September, when the hillsides and wooded areas become ablaze with colours.
A 500m walk from the carpark leads to a board walk and the Falls, a perfect location for memorable photos. Near the carpark and grass area are toilets, gas barbecues, tables and shaded areas, ideal for a family picnic surrounded by the forest.
From the carpark, you can access two other trails: the Baldwins Bluff Trail and Kitty’s Gorge Trail. Summer month are very busy, and it is recommended that you arrive before 11am, as the Park closes when capacity is reached.
