Starting from the Serpentine Falls Car park at the end of Falls Road, Serpentine, this walk leads to Serpentine Falls and back via the Falls Walk Trail. The Serpentine Falls are the crown jewel of the picturesque Serpentine National Park. The water rushes down a large granite rock, creating a spectacular view. A short walk along the Falls Walk Trail, which leaves the car park, will lead you to the Serpentine Falls viewing platform. The path is wheelchair and pram friendly and takes you past the lower pool before ending at the upper pool where the waterfall is. From here, you can marvel at the falls, and if it is a warm day, cool off in the water. Make a full day out of it and have lunch at the picnic area near the start of the walk. Facilities around the picnic area include public toilets, barbecues, picnic tables and informative signs. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
