This trail is a fantastic way to enjoy Lesmurdie Falls at the base of the falls all year round.The walk itself is usually relatively easy and the track proved to be tricky in a few spots due to the recent heavy rainfall.
There were all ages keen to see the overflowing falls, including plenty of seniors. However, this is not flat terrain with some obstacles and even a few hazards along the way. Most able bodied walkers should be able to manage most of the track if wearing appropriate shoes, but if you are going in Winter, especially after rains, proceed with caution. Parts of the track were covered by large puddles and the water does run across it. Most of the track is accessible, however it can get quite narrow and a little tricky to navigate in sections. In the Winter months just be aware of slippery mud and rocks. If you want to get close to the water fall itself there is a fair amount of rocks to scale and walk across. The views of the waterfall are magnificent from wherever you choose to stand.
There are a few picnic spots but be sure to get in early as both the grassed area and the car park fill up quick!Fantastic photo opportunities and an amazing natural wonder that all ages can enjoy. A real show stopper after heavy rains.There are no toilets available, however there are at the lookout where you will find a very impressive viewing platform above the falls that looks out over Lesmurdie and across the city. There are also plenty more trails that are all very safe and accessible for all walkers. There is also plenty of parking, though on the weekends and in nicer weather the car park fills up quickly. There is often a coffee/food van for a cuppa and lunch. Toilets and information boards can be found just off the carpark.
The base trails at Lesmurdie Falls can be found at Falls Road, Mundy Park, Lesmurdie
