Serpentine National Park
Starting at Jarrahdale, originally a timber mill town in 1872, with the last mill closing in 1997, it is a historic town using its jarrah trees for tourism instead of logging. The Kitty’s Gorge Trail follows the Serpentine River and Gooralong Brook. Along the way, it passes impressive granite outcrops and the Brook's many waterfalls. We’ll have lunch at the Serpentine Falls picnic area surrounded by kangaroos and West Australian native trees, including Jarrah, Marri and Wandoo. We return on the same path to Jarrahdale.
