Quinninup Falls is a beautiful winter waterfall, not far from the coast near Moses Rock. The hike to the falls is very rewarding, but also quite physically challenging. Depending on your fitness level, it takes around 45 minutes to walk to the falls and almost an hour to walk back. Factor in time to spend exploring the falls and allow yourself enough sunlight to get there and back. Remember to take plenty of water!

To get to the falls, park at the Moses Road carpark. On your left, you will see toilets and a viewing platform and to the right is the path to the falls. At the start of the path, there are three small wooden posts and some large bushes on either side. As you are walking along keep a lookout for the Cape to Cape Track signs - if you can see them you are going the right way! 

The path varies from flat and easy to rocky and uneven, there are also few big sand dunes that are a breeze coming down, but physically challenging climbing up. However, the view is breathtaking and well worth the effort. At the start of the walk, you can see and hear the waves crashing against the shore and surfers enjoying the ocean. There is a bridge with a winter stream running underneath it, you then walk out into a red dirt plain before the land dips and weaves and Quinninup Falls appears.

A winter only waterfall and even then, not every winter, we need to have quite a wet winter for this to flow properly. Paul Pichugin

The best spot in the south so far. You can see many different types of scenery on the way to the fall. Cami Ko
A good hike with some great views. Waterfall is hit and miss based on how much rainy there has been but its still worth the walk. Ben
