Hardings Falls is a picturesque, multi-tiered cascade waterfall situated on Swan River, approximately 10 km from the township of Royal George, and some 35 – 40 km from Avoca.
Take the C301 road from Cranbrook until you reach the turnoff to the Hardings Falls Forest Reserve. A short walk from the picnic area leads through the eucalypt forest to the lookout at the top of the falls. The 20 minute walk down to the river is steep, so walking shoes are essential, but you’ll be rewarded with a great view of the falls and space to enjoy a picnic lunch on the rock platforms that line the river.
Steep access, via an unsealed road, – 4wd / AWD highly recommended.
