I heard a couple of rave comments about Serpentine Falls but I was skeptical. How good can it be? Anyway, I went there to see it for myself today..
At the entrance, we had to pay AUD$12.00 for entry.. Hmm.. This is above average price for Perth, in fact most places are free. So I thought it better be good..
Walk walk walk a bit, still no sound of waterfalls.. You know, if you go to any decent waterfalls, you can hear its water as you reach closer, to add to the excitement.
Lo and behold, it was the smallest waterfall I ever seen in my whole life.. Since I was there already, I took some obligatory photos (above),,
Zoom in to the waterfall.. Even my wife shower would have more water..
Nothing much to do really in Serpentine National Park.. Some boring trails..
This place is really not worth going to.
Serpentine Dam.. I didn't actually see any serpents but I understand this is part of the water catchment for Perth where we get our water from..
On the way home, we stopped by Golden Ponds Restaurant for lunch.. The place is like a mini zoo with its own pony, peacocks, various birds.. They also have their own fish and marron farm..
Black swan.. The symbol of Western Australia.. Yes, they are not for consumption.
Their food was not too bad.. Their garlic bread was on the crispy side.. Pretty good..
Their Tasmanian Salmon not bad also despite the not so refined presentation..
Their marron was fresh but its flavour totally overpowered by their garlic sauce..
Their fish and chips look very amateurish but don't be fooled by the look.. It was pretty good stuff.. It's one of the more delicious piece of fish in Perth.. But they were not so good with the chips thought, bit too salty, maybe the chef accidentally knocked the whole bottle of salt into the dish..
