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.

Highly recommend this short hike during the wetter weather. Couple of soft sand dunes to get over, then down into small gully to the waterfalls. Views along the way are spectacular. Karenza Macdonald
Hidden gem worth visiting when there has been some rain. The 1.5km walk is moderate in areas due to a couple of steep sandy decents and ascents. The red earth area to the right of the path when walking to the falls is an aboriginal sacred area and needs to be signposted so people’s children don’t play on it and move the rocks. Kerry Judge
Secluded.waterfall, bit of a hike to get to. Views on the trail there are quite the spectacle Make sure you take the trail from Moses rock car park, rather then trying to drive directly to the falls. mark brinkworth
Stunning! It is off a beaten track so don't try and get there with a little car. Be careful if it's a wet day too. The Local Guide
Can be a rough hike if you come from the north but so beautiful and scenic. Not much parking on the north either. You need a 4wd. Paul Grabovac
