Waterfall Safety and Common Sense

Beedelup Falls was perhaps the one waterfall in the southwest of Australia where we saw somewhat satisfactory flow during our June 2006 visit to the area.

Perhaps the main reason for its revival was that we were hit with a couple of days of pretty significant rains.

The photo you see above showed that even though the 10m falls had somewhat satisfactory flow, it was still somewhat on the low side.

So I’d imagine with a few more days of rain like what we were having, it would look even fuller than what we were able to see.

In addition to the waterfall attraction, we also happened to be in the so-called Karri Forest, which featured the namesake tall karri trees.

This was quite a pleasant surprise to us considering that we didn’t know much about these trees.

We certainly hadn’t planned on seeing these trees when we were planning for this leg of the trip (yet another consequence of how waterfalling yielded wonderfully unexpected surprises).

Experiencing Beedelup Falls

From the car park (see directions below), we followed a loop walk that looked to be wheelchair-friendly at least to the top of the falls.

The path was surrounded by greenery so it was an easy and enjoyable walk throughout.

Once at the falls, we were able to get top down views which showed how gentle the slope was before the waterfall made its more steep drop further downstream.

We continued the loop walk towards the other side of the Carey Brook where we were able to get other profile views of the falls.

We eventually made it to a swinging bridge further downstream of the falls, and this was where we thought we got the best views of Beedelup Falls (see photo at the top of this page).

Overall, we spent about 35 minutes on this very easy loop walk.

Even though it had been raining on and off during our visit, we had no trouble as we donned our rain ponchos and stayed on the mostly established walkways.

If one were so inclined to see more than just the Beedelup Falls, the loop walk to the falls also coincided with the Bibbulman Track, which was said to be the WA’s only long-distance walking track at 963km.


Beedelup Falls resides in the Pemberton area of Western Australia. It is administered jointly by the Western Australia Government. For information or inquiries about the area as well as current conditions, visit their website.

You can reach the car park for Beedelup National Park by heading west from Pemberton on Hwy 10 for about 20 minutes (roughly 24km). The well-signed turnoff on the right then leads for a few more minutes on a smooth unsealed track towards the large car park complex. A self-help day use fee is required. I recalled we had to pay $9 during our June 2006 visit.

For some additional context, Pemberton was 145km (under 2 hours drive) east of Margaret River, 323km (over 3.5 hours drive) south of Perth, and 239km (under 3 hours drive) west of Albany.

Beedelup Falls April 3, 2010 3:28 am by Tracey - Aside from the attractive waterfall, Beedelup Falls has great boardwalks, a radio broadcast, a suspension bridge and decent walkways. One of the more developed national parks, a bit of money has obviously been spent on jazzing it up a bit. Well and truly worth a visit, just to see what can be done. Also quite… ...Read More
