I always love going to Waterfall Gully, even for a small hike or the beginning of Lofty, its a nice short and encompassing walk that offers a lovely waterfall at the end which still offers a nice outlook of the expected scenery. I most often...More

enjoyed our walk around Waterful Gully National Park, and so did our overseas visitors. Bonus in Winter is there really is a waterfall.

In the Adelaide hills you'll find this calming and relaxing spot of nature. There are walks for all abilities and plenty of photo opportunities. There is car parking available but am guessing that it could be problematic in summertime.

We went there during heavy rainfall. It reminds me of country parks and waterfall in Hong Kong. It is a nice and easy trail.

This is a very popular walk going to the top of Mount Lofty. It is quite steep so not so easy for the unfit or during hot weather. Quite a few fitness nuts run up and down this one. I'm not sure how their knees...More

The waterfall was not very impressive but the hike to Mt Lofty was fabulous. The hike has some steep inclines but there are a lot of benches along the way if you wish or need a break. Definitely need to be in semi-good shape to...More

This was probably the highlight of our visit to Adelaide and we were there in not-so-great weather. Even with your children and walk up the sometimes very steep path up the gully was beautiful to look at and fun for the kids. While not all...More

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

It's free. Re children depends on age I suppose - the waterfalls are pretty and the first one is right near the carpark. Have to hike/walk to get to the rest and it's quite steep/tough in some parts.
