One of the benefits of living in the world’s most isolated capital city is that we are surrounded by hidden oases and secret swimming spots. Here, you can lay upon the white sand of your own private lagoon, take a dip in these natural pools that are sheltered from the world, and be lulled into serenity by the peaceful sound of water falling into itself. Check out these top swimming holes not too far from Perth’s metropolitan area below.

Serpentine Falls

Emerge from the verdant forest that surrounds this freshwater pool and take in the sight of the Falls. A sanctuary for the native fauna and flora of the area and ancient hunting ground of the Noongar Peoples, the water flows over the granite rock of the Serpentine River valley.

 


Yanchep Lagoon

Yanchep Lagoon is one of the best kept secrets on the West Coast. Enclosed by a reef which is home to many starfish, the beach remains calm most days and you can easily find a spot to lay out your towel on the soft sand. Across the road, a beachy café awaits those who build up an appetite in the swell.

 


Lesmurdie Falls

This secluded spot hidden up in the hills in Kalamunda National Park is a rare and wild natural swimming spot; prone to disappearing in the drier months making a dip all the more magical. It’s the perfect end to a hillside hike through the bush.
