It is a nice walk, but other than that nothing special. We were able to see only 2 waterfalls and others either we couldn't find, or there was no water. Was definitely expecting much more after all the reviews.

The waterfall is a nice getaway from the city life. Came with 2 young kids and the waterfall is easy to access from Adelaide City. Car park is at close proximity as well. There’s a short path to reach the top of the waterfall from...More

Waterfalls all year round. Great water fall on ground level accessible by everyone and wheel chair friendly. There is a creek running through the car park. Lots of clean toilets and free parking. The cafe is a little expensive but popular and some amazing walks...More

The visit to the waterfalls are easy and family friendly. The Utopia Café is nice. The walk up to Mt Lofty is easily the best in Adelaide for exercise junkies. You'll be well rewarded with the view from Mt Lofty at the top (1 hour...More

If you fancy a nice walk into the park the waterfall is great. It can get busy on weekends and is not that hard a walk from the road. Go after rain when the waterfall is craking. There are facilities up at Lofty lookout, such...More

The drive there is half the fun as you meander the long windy road with interesting real estate either side. Visit the waterfalls, dine in style, grab a coffee or climb to Mount Lofty in an hour (in leisure wear). Cool and calming and worth...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.
