The Serpentine National Park is a wonderful place to visit, with its scenic features and close proximity from Perth. The park has attracted visitors for almost 100 years because of the sanctuary it provides to plants and animals as well as an area perfect for picnics. Set in this naturally beautiful cleft at the foot of a scarp, you’ll find one last stop before climbing up these steep slopes that have been smoothed by rushing water over time!
Before the Europeans came to our land, many tribes such as Whadjuk and Bindjareb hunted in these woodlands. The serpentine river was a great place for hunting animals and fishing fresh water fish while they camped by the wetlands of coastal plain which provided food resources like tortoises, lizards, birds– anything that could be caught!
