Starting from Lower Lesmurdie Falls Car Park, Forrestfield, this walk takes you on a circuit in Lesmurdie Falls National Park. The walk offers 360-degree views of Perth from certain sections, and you can enjoy the wide variety of wildflowers in the area. It is also possible to encounter ant colonies during the walk, as well. The walk can be exposed in certain sections, so you might want to bring your hats and spare water with you during the hot season. For a better navigation experience, you might want to follow the GPS throughout your walk. 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.
