My wife and I took the 60 Foot Falls walking trail. While the initial incline took some effort, the rest stops along the way afforded some respite and a progression of the views. We went at the end of autumn and there was no water...More

There's some wonderful trails for hiking here, and I'd recommend going in the winter, especially after recent rain, in order to increase the chances of seeing water at 60 foot falls. There's a number of trails here from the parking area, with the best one...More

We visited here in winter as a group of two families. Unfortunately it hadn't rained much and there was only a trickle of water running down the 60 foot falls. That didn't really detract from our afternoon however, as we just wanted to get out...More

Despite it being winter, there wasn't much water flowing at the 60ft falls on the day of my visit. But Ellis Brook is a great place to escape to for a walk amongst beautiful Australian bush land. It's not a flat trail, and requires quite...More

I would recommend this walk and scenic tour to any one visiting Perth. It takes an hour to walk the whole trail and has views of both 60 ft falls and Perth city from the Perth hills. Gates close at 5pm so be sure to...More

Went on a walk through University field exercise up to the top of the waterfall, and the view was amazing. You can see the city of Perth nestled in between the sides of the hills so perfectly. The water fall is a 60 m drop...More

There is a lovely walk track that leads around an old quarry, with amazing views of the city skyline. There is also a large waterfall, which I didn't know existed and was unexpected! The walk trail is not that strenuous if you head to the...More
