A little escape to the hills
Noble Falls is the perfect place to take in the serenity that the Perth hills offer. There are picnic and bbq areas, a walking track, it’s dog friendly, has a waterfall and is right next to a pub! There is not much more you could want from a day trip.
The Perth Hills come alive in the wintertime and there’s a ton of great walking tracks and lunch spots to take advantage of. Noble Falls walking track is a great walk for people of all ages and levels of fitness and is only about an hour drive from Perth in Gidgegannup. The walk itself can take between 1-3 hours, depending on which loop you take and is very easy going. You can expect to stay close to the creek for most of it which is surrounded by trees, very sheltered and provides some great photo opportunities.
Of course, you don’t actually need to do the walking track to take advantage of Noble Falls. The waterfall itself is right next to the parking lot and is easily accessible to everyone.
While Noble Falls is not the most impressive waterfall you’ll ever find, it does have a decent amount of water flowing through it (depending on recent rainfall). And what it lacks in size it makes up for in personality and tranquillity. Whip out the cheese, crackers and wine on one of the picnic tables or fire up one of the barbies to give yourself a lunch with a view.
If cooking isn’t your thing or just fancy a pub feed, wander over yonder to the Nobel Falls tavern which offers some great food at a reasonable price.
