The journey to Quinninup Falls is every bit as beautiful as the falls themselves but while the walk is very rewarding it is also quite physically challenging.
Before you leave, make sure you tell someone where you are going, take plenty of water and allow yourself enough sunlight to get there and back. As a guide it takes approximately 45 minutes to walk to the falls and almost an hour to walk back, depending on your fitness level and age of your children. Also factor in time to spend exploring the falls. All up the trip can take around two hours.
To get to the falls park your car 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 either side. As you are walking along keep a look out for the Cape to Cape Track signs, if you can see them you are going the right way!
The path to and from Quinninup Falls 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.
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 stream running underneath it, you then walk out into red dirt plane before the land dips and weaves and Quinninup Falls appears.
The sudden change between the ocean and sand dunes and the waterfall is surprising and a welcome contrast. One minute you can hear the wind and the waves crashing against the shore and then you step down into a small, quiet, green sanctuary and the sound of the rushing waterfall takes centre stage.
