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.

Great little hike, starts from the Mosses Rock car park and follows part of the Cape to Cape track along to coast. Only one hard part of the climb is coming back up the sand dune from the falls but should be easy enough for everyone. At the end of the walk you come to a nice little waterfall.

After Google maps took us on a wild goose chase, we finally found the correct route to the falls. Moses Rock rd to the Cape to Cape track is the key. The trail to the falls is very narrow, but easy enough to follow and the falls aren't too far from the parking approx. 3.5km return. Waterfalls are al...
