Star 4.3 (156 Google reviews)

The Wadandi (Saltwater) people are the traditional owners of this land. Quinninup is the Place of the Zamia Palm, and the Falls, and the area surrounding the Falls, are of immense importance to Wadandi culture. "While visiting we ask that you walk softly, taking the time to listen to and care for Boodja (Country)." • Do not remove or alter any rock formations or flora • Stick to dedicated walking trails • Leave only footprints To learn more about Wadandi culture visit Undalup. com or take part in a Cultural experience with Koomal Dreaming.
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 return walk of just under 4km very hard going on the sand dunes especially getting back up the way. Good walking boots required, take water. Well worth it.

Second time visiting this place and always great, now even more interesting as the lighthouse has been finish renovation. Good cafe and coffee.

Great, but track needs better maintenance to prevent erosion. Better in spring.
