To start your day, head to Serpentine Falls. You can either walk or hop n the car as its just 2km down the road. Check out the stunning Falls and surroundings, flora and fauna, maybe explore one of the walk trails or you could have a privately guided hike through the National Park with Off The Beaten Track WA? There are half day, full day or twilight hikes, and you get picked up and dropped off from the Park!
HOT TIP: Be sure to get to the Falls early, because once the National Park is full, it can be closed for the remainder of the day.
After exploring Serpentine Falls, you would have worked up a big appetite, so why not book into the stunning two hat award winning Millbrook Winery for lunch! These guys are incredible popular, so be sure to book in early! Our guests can take advantage of a 10% discount. Just ask us how.
For something a little more casual, Jarrahdale Tavern is well worth stopping in. They also have a playground to keep the kids entertained and quite often live entertainment.
Feeling re-energised after lunch, explore the rich history of the townsite of Jarrahdale by visiting the Old Post Office Museum. Not only does this act as a Tourism Centre, but the museum holds many historical records and photos documenting the history of the town. Many bushwalks also start from the Post Office! Just around the corner is Necessiteas, with herbal and medicinal teas, collectables, antiques and clothing. Feeling thirsty? Call into Jarrahdale Tavern for a drink and soak in the interesting collections up on display.
Take a scenic drive out to Serpentine Dam. The dam was completed in 1961 and is one of the largest water supplies to the Metro area still today. There are many areas to have a relaxing picnic, and you might be lucky to see some kangaroos, or you will certainly see some birds – see how many different species you can spot? If you fancy a coffee or a bite to eat, call into the Café on the Dam. Next, head to Bodhinyana Buddhist Monastery to share a meal with the monks for the Daily Offering at 10.30am. Here you can absorb the serenity of the 242 hectare property, take part in a short blessing and have an informal chat to the monks after the meal.
There are plenty of activities to fill in your afternoon, like a round of golf at the Serpentine & Districts Golf Club, battle it out with paintball at Wasp Paintball Baldivis (Ask Reception about a Guest Discount) . Check out if there are any local markets happening, and grab some of the local produce at Borello Cheese and Mundella Foods. Also visit the Hugh Manning Tractor Museum to view a huge range of tractors and machinery, which showcases the history of farming (Open Saturdays and Sundays).
I stayed here with my kids and my parents. We stayed in a camp site in our caravans. We loved our stay here. The grounds were clean and tidy, the bathrooms were immaculate. It was very peaceful and quiet. We really enjoyed our short walk to the falls, which was beautiful this time of the year.
We booked in for 4 nights with our caravan and ended up staying an extra 2 nights. Great park, good size sites nice grassed area. Amenities very clean and nice camp kitchen although had to pay to operate hotplates and bar-b-ques (most places these are free). Lovely helpful staff and a good place to base ourselves to see Freemantle and Perth and surrounding area. The falls are beautiful very worth a visit.
Just spend a fabulous weekend here, the park is beautifully maintained and the chalets were spotless. Check in was a delight, very friendly and helpful. The park is very quiet at night and during the day everyone you met greeted you with a smile and hello. Would recommend this park to anyone. Our safety deposit was returned the day we left.
