Serpentine Falls

Serpentine Falls is located within the beautiful Serpentine National Park . You can enjoy a picnic, swim, take a walk on one of the trails and enjoy the local wildlife, including friendly kangaroos.


The Serpentine Falls are the crowning jewel of the picturesque Serpentine National Park. This scenic national park is located just 55 kilometres southeast of Perth, meaning it’s a must do day trip.

Entrance to the Serpentine National Park is via Falls Rd Serpentine, and a National Park entrance fee applies.

A 400m walk along the gravel Falls Walk Trail, which leaves from the car park, will lead you to the Serpentine Falls viewing platform. From here you can marvel at the falls, and if it is a beautiful day, cool off in the water. From the falls you can also venture onto to Kitty's Trail and Baldwins Bluff Trail with more information on the Shire's trails page.
