Lesmurdie Falls Base Trail

Lesmurdie Falls

This trail is a fantastic way to enjoy Lesmurdie Falls at the base of the falls all year round.Lesmurdie FallsThe walk itself is usually relatively easy and the track proved to be tricky in a few spots due to the recent heavy rainfall.Lesmurdie FallsThere 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. Lesmurdie Falls

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.Lesmurdie Falls 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.Lesmurdie FallsThere are a few picnic spots but be sure to get in early as both the grassed area and the car park fill up quick!Lesmurdie Falls
Fantastic photo opportunities and an amazing natural wonder that all ages can enjoy. A real show stopper after heavy rains.Lesmurdie FallsThere 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

About Kerry Lane

I am 67 years of age and retired. I was born and bred in Perth but now live with my husband, Michael, in Albany, Western Australia. We have four children and six grandchildren. I have always enjoyed sports but my passion was basketball in which I played and attained State level. I coached at both junior and senior levels. I was also the team manager for the Perth Quit Breakers (now known as the Perth Lynx) for many years and was on the Board of the WA Basketball Association. I worked for Woodside Energy for 19 years before transferring to Darwin with my husband, also a Woodsider, who took up management of the Northern Territory operations of the company. I was the Private Secretary to the Chief Minister of the Northern Territory Govt. during my time there before retiring. My husband and I then travelled around Australia in a caravan for a year before finally settling for a seachange in Albany. We built a house at beautiful Goode Beach, joined the Albany Golf Club and started to explore our surrounds. We have made many friends since arriving in Albany and family and friends from near and far enjoy visiting and experiencing our part of the world. We are heavily involved in the Golf Club which keeps us busy. I enjoy reading, wining, dining, good friends and still love to travel both here in Oz and overseas.
