Serpentine National Park
Perth is known among tourists for its beautiful beaches, making its equally stunning natural pools the perfect place to soak up some sun without the crowds. Feeling a little city weary? Pack a picnic, hop in a car and head for Serpentine National Park – if you don’t have a car, Perth’s notorious public transport means the trip isn’t so easy but where there’s a will, there’s a way. Despite only being an hour from the city centre, this green space feels like a world of its own with lush landscapes and valleys, but the park’s real appeal is the Serpentine Falls. Water cascades over a sheer granite rock face into a glittering pool below – the perfect spot for a dip to cool down in the Australian heat. The falls are surrounded by soft grass so lay down the picnic blanket and bask in the natural splendour – you may even spot a kangaroo or two.
