Lesmurdie Falls is a 2km, grade 4 Return hike located in Perth Hills Western Australia. The hike should take approximately 0.75hrs to complete.

Summary

Lesmurdie Falls located in the Lesmurdie Falls National Park in the hills east of Perth, are one of the more spectacular waterfalls on the Darling Range escarpment. The trail starts at the top of the falls with a short walk to the viewing platform. For a longer walk follow the trail to the base of the falls where the 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. 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.
