Things To Do

Serpentine National Park & Serpentine Falls

Leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind you and enjoy a taste of natural Australian bushland. With its proximity to Perth City and its scenic features, Serpentine National Park has been attracting visitors for almost 100 years.

The Serpentine River passes through the landscape, giving rise to the main attraction of the Serpentine Falls. As the autumn and winter rains arrive, water cascades down high granite outcrops into a rock-lined pool 15 metres below.

Set in a naturally beautiful cleft at the foot of the scarp, the Park stretches up the steep slopes of the Serpentine River valley, past a sheer face of granite polished smooth by the rushing waters.  Around the grass lawns in the late afternoon, Western Grey Kangaroos come down to graze and are quite unconcerned about visitors.

The best time to see the wildflowers is from July to November. The finest displays are in September, when the hillsides and wooded areas become ablaze with colour.

At Serpentine Falls you will find a sealed loop road and car park, a grassy picnic area, shaded picnic tables, gas barbeques, and toilets with access for people with disabilities.

There are four main walk trails within the Park –


Dogs not permitted.

The Park is open from 8.30am to 5pm, 7 days a week.

Please note that the Falls area often fills to capacity and is then closed to new visitors; plan to arrive before 10am.
