Waterfall Gully has a restaurant at the waterfall base before a wonderful, but at times challenging, hike up to Mount Lofty, worth the effort for the spectacular view across the Adelaide plains, the city and gorgeous sea views. Stop for a coffee or ice-cream at...More

Waterfall Gully is a beautiful place and also very popular. It was really difficult to find a parking space on a Sunday morning. It was an easy walk to the waterfall. It is a beautiful sight. Good place to start a hike too. Surprisingly fast...More

this place is a must to go to in spring, put on some sneakers and walk up the walking trail or drive straight up the top to the cafe/restaurant and enjoy the views.

Great place to visit any time of the year and enjoying a nice walk. Great for picnic and plenty of rooms for kids to run around. Looks amazing in autumn

Not far from the city of Adelaide sits this little gem. It seems that people know about it as parking was a little challenge. Great walks and views.

Beautiful place to chill and enjoy nature. Serene and peaceful surrounding to recharge. I love coming here on a weekend for the lively sounds of families setting out on their hikes, or the weekday for the quiet and calm.

There's a picturesque waterfall at the bottom, there are a couple of nice scenic spots with a view of the city on the way up, a couple of 'pretty glades' as well but the best place would be at the lookout at the top... More
