How great is Lesmurdie Falls? It’s only half an hour drive from Perth CBD and one of the most known waterfalls in Perth area. It’s a great place for a walk as there are several walk trails but most importantly, it’s a fantastic place for photography and it was probably one of the first places I went to when I started taking photos. Everytime it would rain, I would head there the next day! Now with full time work, it has become more difficult and there is a huge conflict between other places I like to visit! Nonetheless, if you are in the area, this is a place not to be missed. My favorite time is early in the morning. You can hear the birds and the waterfall and the sun rises slowly behind it.
If you are at the top of the falls, there is also a walk trail heading North-East to the “cascades”. Up the creek, the Friends of Upper Lesmurdie Falls are doing a great job at keeping the place tidy. One of their main aim is to reduce weed infestation and replant native species instead.
