Serpentine Falls, Serpentine National Park

Trail: Kitty’s Gorge or Baldwins Bluff / Distance: 6 – 16km

A day spent at the iconic Serpentine Falls is a day well spent.

You can access one of Perth’s best swimming spots with just a short drive down to Serpentine. Head into Serpentine National Park, with a picnic and beach towel at the ready, because you will need it after you tackle the hiking trails of the region. Kitty’s Gorge is a perfect 5-6 hour adventure for the most active enthusiast, as you follow the Gooralong Brook all the way to Jarrahdale and back. If you are after something just as beautiful without the distance, Baldwins Bluff will be your trail of choice, at just 6km and providing views for days from the summit.
