Fernhook Falls is located along the Deep River which is one of the main tribuaries of the Walpole and Nornalup Inlets. It is situated in the Mount Frankland National Park, part of the Walpole Wilderness Area about forty kilometres north of Walpole.
Fernhook Falls is a popular swimming and picnic spot in summer, and during winter is a truly magnificent sight!
Downriver of the falls, along the boardwalk which follows the river, you will find Rowels Pool. Here a safe canoe launch is used, primarily during the whitewater season (July to the end of Oct).
There are offers tent camping sites, picnic tables, free gass barbecues and toilet facilities. (Camping fees apply) This is a wonderful destination for an afternoon's adventure.
Intending to make a trip down the river, read the information on the launch sign board which says "River condidtions can vary considerably durnig the year, greatly affecting the time your trip will take and its degree of difficulty."
The sign has a table which is a guide to help you determine how long your trip will take. Information on the river conditions can be sought from the CALM office in Walpole. Be sure to contact them and let someone know you'll be making a trip on the river for your own safety.
Read it, Be Safe, Have Fun.
The launch at Towells Pool are concrete steps leading down to the waterline.
