180 Falls Rd, Lesmurdie WA 6076, Australia Lesmurdie Australia
Lesmurdie Falls National Park is located on the escarpment 20 kilometres east/south-east of Perth. The Park covers 56 hectares and is only 5 kilometres from Kalamunda. Access to the park is via Lesmurdie and Falls Road. The Lesmurdie Brook flows through the centre of Lesmurdie Falls National Park before tumbling 50 metres over a sheer face of the Darling Scarp to form the two-stage Lesmurdie Falls. In winter and spring, after rains swell the brook, the waterfall pours over the stream’s granite bedrock in a stunning display. It is considered to be one of the more spectacular waterfalls on the Darling Range escarpment. There is a trail which starts at the top of the falls with a short walk to the viewing platform. For a longer walk, you can follow the trail to the base of the falls where lush vegetation grows. This walk is particularly recommended in winter and spring when the rains swell Lesmurdie Brook which tumbles over the Darling Range Escarpment. A lookout allows you to view the falls and, on a clear day, the flat land of the coastal plain allows a clear view over Perth city and as far out to Rottnest Island on the western horizon. The trail is 2km long and facilities include BBQ’s, car park, lookouts, picnic area, public toilets, sheltered area and water access points.
