22 km east of Perth. The Lesmurdie Brook flows through the centreof the park and tumbles 50 metres over the sheer face of the Darling Scarp. In winter, when rains swell the brook, the waterfall pours over the stream's granite bedrock. On a clear day, from lookout points on the steep walkways that wander through the park, the flat land of the coastal plain sweeps the eye out over Perth city to Rottnest Island on the western horizon. On the steep slopes of this 56-hectare reserve are extensive areas of heath vegetation, with pockets of wandoo, marri and jarrah trees.
