Kitty's Gorge

Why should I go?

Kitty’s Gorge is one of the most iconic trails within the Perth Hills, passing through a variety of “gorgeous” (see what we did there?) landscapes and making for the perfect day hike. Located in the Serpentine National Park, the trail follows the Serpentine River and Gooralong Brook.

Serpentine Falls

Why should I go?

The most beautiful natural attraction in the Peel region, Serpentine Falls is the ideal day trip. Okay, we might be a little biased, but why not come and judge for yourself? The trail is located within Serpentine National Park, and the Falls are the perfect opportunity to capture memorable photos and even go for a swim.

What is on offer?

There is an optional climb to the viewing platform which provides the perfect vantage point overlooking the Falls, while you might also enjoy lunch with gas barbecues, tables and shaded areas. Visit the Falls in the spring months (particularly in September) to capture all its beauty in the middle of wildflower season.

What else can I do while I’m visiting?

From the car park you can also access the Baldwin’s Bluff and Kitty’s Gorge trail, two of Serpentine Jarrahdale’s more iconic locations.

What is on offer?

This is one of many short walks available on the famous Bibbulmun Track. Starting at Sullivan Rock, you will meander past creeks while making your way through stands of sheoak, banksia and jarrah trees. If you’re up for the challenge, make your way to the southern side of the peak of Mt Cooke and soak in the spectacular views.

What else can I do while I’m visiting?

If you’ve decided to camp the night, you can of course continue exploring the surrounds or leave your pack at the campsite before ascending to the peak. This a good overnight hike for families with children aged 8 years and above.
