Waterfall Gully#6 in Best Things To Do in Adelaide
Price & Hours
Waterfall Gully is the largest of seven waterfalls situated in Cleland Conservation Park. At this popular outdoor attraction, photographers can snap jaw-dropping photos while fitness buffs traverse the nearly 3-mile-long Waterfall Gully to Mount Lofty Summit path, a challenging hiking trail that starts at the base of the waterfall. Hikers report occasionally spotting kangaroos, echidna and koalas here as well.
Visitors describe Waterfall Gully as an "oasis in Adelaide" that's well worth seeing. Many appreciate hiking around the area, though some caution that parking is limited by the trailhead. To snag a prime spot, arrive at sunrise when the park opens. Also, consider skipping this attraction's hiking trail if you're not in the best physical shape.
Besides Waterfall Gully's hiking trail and waterfall, travelers have access to picnic areas and restrooms. Food and water cannot be purchased on-site, but visitors are welcome to bring snacks and drinks with them. There are no attraction or parking fees; trains, trams and buses are not available near the property, but the No. 823 bus does have a stop at Mount Lofty Summit, the endpoint of the Waterfall Gully to Mount Lofty Summit trail. Waterfall Gully sits 6 miles southeast of downtown Adelaide and is open from sunrise to sunset every day except Christmas. Visit National Parks South Australia's website to learn more.
