Now is the best time to visit our waterfalls. As winter ends and spring begins the water in our waterways is about as full as it is going to get.

We decided to take advantage of a beautiful sunny day to visit Noble Falls in Gidgegannup and enjoy the site and sound of fast running water.

Another great thing about this time of year is it is wildflower season and the wattles are in full bloom, a sight that only lasts so long. There are also plenty of other wildflowers to see along the walk trail here.

The Noble Falls did not disappoint either, with fast paced running water rushing over the rocks as can be seen here.

You can also see how close to the car park and picnic area Noble Falls is, so if you’re not up for a walk then you can still enjoy the views.

There are 2 walk trails at Noble Falls, a short 1.3 km loop and a longer 3.5 km loop. Both trails offer a very scenic walk along the river and through the surrounding bushland returning on the far side of the river. We took the longer trail and really enjoyed the walk and the views.

If after a walk along the Wooroloo Brook you have developed an appetite then there is a picnic / barbecue area near the falls or the Noble Falls Tavern just across the road, where we had a great lunch.

If you love waterfalls then may we also suggest a trip to John Forest National Park, Sixty Foot Falls and Lesmurdie Falls to name a few great days out.

Dave will be posting Part 2 of this blog with lots of amazing pictures from the walk and some great photo tips.

Cheers,
Maggie
