We visit Beedelup Falls whenever we are in Pemberton. It’s a beautiful spot to enjoy the waterfalls and be immersed into the forest and wildlife.
The falls are accessed from a turnoff off the Vasse Highway. Keep a look-out for the tourist signs pointing you in the correct direction. There is plenty of parking at the falls, including space for caravans and buses.
is a short 300m walk from the carpark to the falls. This track is suitable for
wheelchairs and prams and will take you to the all-access viewing platform out
over the falls. During our visit, we decided to walk a loop around the falls.
Firstly we crossed over the suspension bridge and then walked up and crossed
back over the standard (solid non-swaying) bridge, and then back to the carpark.
The kids had lots of fun on the suspension bridge, jumping and bouncing their way across. They had no fear what-so-ever!
The walk was nice and short, and we didn’t receive any
complaints of “I’m bored” or “my legs are tired”, which is a big win in my
books. The kids were just fascinated with the falls and the enormity of the
trees surrounding them.
From Beedelup Falls there is access to other walk trails that take you around Beedelup Lake and/or to the Karri Walk-through Tree. These trails are a lot harder and not suitable for prams.
The Beedelup Falls are beautiful to visit all year round, but the best time is in Winter and Spring when the falls are fully flowing. Beedelup Falls are located within a National Park, so park entry fees apply (find out more from the DPAW website) and can be paid for via an honesty system box at the bottom of the car park. If purchasing a day pass, make the most of it and check out Gloucester Tree on the same day.
