“After a Bit of Rock Hopping We Found the Little HiddenWaterfall”
While watching the waves at Injidup we noticed a few people coming from behind the rocks in their swimming gear. After a bit of rock hopping we found the little hidden waterfall. There were waves breaking and every now and then they spilled water over into the crystal clear pool where my kids we sitting. They loved the water falling over their heads.
There were great views and the rock hoping was really fun. We also really enjoyed the sandy beach at Smiths Beach. The water was crystal clear and there was a great little shore dump breaking that the kids played in for hours. It was really safe and we spent a lot of time at this beach swimming and playing in the surf.
The Margaret River Surf Pro was on when I was in town and it was a great bonus for us. The beach is set up like an amphitheater and sitting on the boardwalk watching the world’s best surfers was a real treat.
