A fantastic list of water falls in and around Perth.

After a pretty wet winter, Perth’s waterfalls and rivers are in full flow and the warmer days give us a great chance to get out and about to explore nature with the kids. Here’s my top tips for 4 Perth waterfalls to visit this summer.

1. Serpentine Falls

Located about an hour south of the Perth CBD, Serpentine Falls are huge and spectacular. Forming part of the Serpentine National Park, the Serpentine Falls car park is set at the foot of the scarp and the park extends up the steep slope of the Serpentine River valley. There’s a really wide bitumen path to the foot of the falls which is an easy 400m stroll from the large car park with a buggy or toddlers in tow.

For the more adventurous explorers, there are several paths and walking trails to tackle which vary in length and difficulty. Popular for picnics, the car park area is also frequented by very tame Western grey kangaroos though Rangers warn against sharing your sandwich! Toilets and BBQs are available, plus a coffee van is often on site at peak times.

Entry fee: $13 per car
Location: Signposted off South West Highway, south of Byford

2. Araluen Botanic Park

Perth Crochet Club will host two very special kids crochet classes during the winter holidays that are perfect for children who would love to learn a new hobby.
Nestled deep in the Perth Hills, Araluen is one of our favourite family days out. The formal gardens are stunning, with roses, azaleas and tulips abundant, depending on the season. Contrast this with the rapid water rushing through the edge of park, surrounded by rugged outcrops of rocks for older kids to explore freely.

Look out for the special “Springtime at Araluen” event in September when tulips and spring bulbs abound.

Entry fees: Adult $6, Children 6-15 years $3
Location: 362 Croyden Rd, Roleystone

3. Noble Falls

I don’t know whats taken us so long to find this place (its actually really easy to get to!) but we visited for the first time last weekend and we love it! The falls are located really close to the car park, making them easy to reach for those with little legs.

Noble Falls in full flow


Explore a bit further and there’s a choice of 1km or 3km walking trails, following the scenic path of the Wooroloo Brook.

Noble Falls are located directly opposite the Noble Falls Tavern which is popular with locals and visitors. The nearby Gidgegannup Bakery is also a great spot to grab a coffee or a bite to eat. There’s a small playground, toilets and BBQs. Dogs on leads welcome. Wear insect repellent as the flies are persistent.

Entry fee: Free
Location: Toodyay Road, Gidgegannup

4. Bells Rapids

A wide footbridge spans the white water rapids, making this a spectacular spot for a family stroll. There’s walking trails beside the Swan River or more challenging routes up the escarpment taking in spectacular views towards the Swan Valley.

Bells Rapids has plenty of rugged rocky outcrops to explore


Its a really popular spot to watch the annual Avon Descent race which takes place in August. No cafe on site but dozens to choose from in the local Swan Valley area, plus heaps of wineries and family friendly restaurants to explore nearby.

Location: Cathedral Ave, Brigadoon
Entry fee: Free
