Kevill Road Waterfall isn’t a huge waterfall, more of a cascade, but it’s worth the detour of the main road, especially after heavy rainfall.

The wide waterfall is fed by Margaret River and flows over rocks to a pool at the bottom.

How to find Kevill Road Waterfall

From Bussell Highway in Margaret River town, take Walcliffe Road then turn right onto Kevill Road. As you drive along, look for kangaroos lazing in the grass.

Opposite Waterfall Cottages, there’s a gravel bay where you can park. From there, it’s an easy walk to the falls.

Best Time to Visit Kevill Road Waterfall

The best time to visit Kevill Road Waterfall is during winter or early spring. This is when the region receives heavy rainfall, causing the waterfall to cascade.

If you visit at other times of the year, you should be able to jump across the river as the flow is reduced to a small stream.

Parking and Facilities Available

Kevill Road Waterfall has a designated parking area close by, allowing you to safely leave your vehicle. Park responsibly and follow any posted parking regulations to ensure the safety and convenience of all visitors.

There are no facilities (including toilets) near the waterfall, but Margaret River town is a five-minute drive.

Kevill Road Waterfall Tips

  • Drive slowly as there may be kangaroos on the side of Kevill Rd – they are more active around dawn and dusk
  • Wear closed-in shoes – rocks may be slippery and there is the possibility of snakes in the area
