“A little piece of outback 20mins from the City”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

If you don't have time to get outback, take a trip to this wonderful park and go for a stroll. See the beautiful red rocks and the bright blue sky and you'll know what the attraction is.

Unfortunately, it appears the waterways have been overcome by blackberries and some type of sweet pea. Other times I've been here there was just purely Australian vegetation and it was great.

But you'll still hear wonderful bird-life and possibly see some gorgeous wrens, and of course marvel at the beauty of the eucalyptus trees.

There is a flat track all the way to Morialta Falls, but for the more adventurous, there are trails that lead upwards for views down on to the park.

“Any age, Any fitness level”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

I had not been there for many years because of all the steps. What a surprise!!! To the first falls it is now all pathways. There are other tracks depending on fitness levels and time frames, steps also if you can manage them. You would be unfortunate if you did not see at least one koala in the trees. Allow a minimum of at least 1 hour. Enjoy!!!!

“Nature close to the city.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Now been twice in three days. Before this, I had no idea this conservation park existed. Beautiful scenery whilst walking through the gorges. Lots of walking tracks and lookouts to visit. Take your walking shoes as there is lots to see. At this time of year there are koala's with their young.

“Australian Natural Beauty is close to Adelaide City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

Nowhere else in Australia is such bush land easily accessible to a city. The towering cliffs of the gorges set a magnificent backdrop to this must see place. The waterfalls are beautiful when running after the Winter rainfalls. The cave walk is easily accessible. Watch out for a chance to spot the lovely Koala Bears relaxing and eating gum-leaves in the gum trees overhead. Varying well signed walking tracks are available to the hiker.
