Lesmurdie Falls located in the Lesmurdie Falls National Park in the hills east of Perth, are one of the more spectacular waterfalls on the Darling Range escarpment. Commencing at the top, this short 2 kilometre walk circuit meanders down to the base of the falls, up close to the lush vegetation, and is quite unique for the Perth area. The walk trail starts on the top of the falls where Lesmurdie brook tumbles over the Darling Range Escarpment. Walking down the hill, it follows the brook until it reaches a bridge at the top of the falls. Stand at the top and look over the fall of water. The trail continues down to the picnic area at the base of the hills. From here there is a trail that leads to the base of the falls. This is more like a waterfall in New Zealand than in Perth. The lush vegetation grows where the bubbling brook hits the base of the waterfall. The climb up the hill to return to the car park is steep but short. Enjoy morning tea or lunch in the near by Kalamunda Village.

I really enjoyed this dog friendly trail. It has it all: lots of water at varied points, varied terrain including challenging climbs, many pretty spots slightly off trail to stop for a breather or to have a snack, city views, and toilets on Falls Rd.

Beautiful views of the city, the first part of the trail can be quite busy but once you get a bit deeper it's wonderful

Use the lookout to make it into a loop circuit and it becomes much more interesting and a bit more challenging
