Only 10km from the city center this century-old site is really accessible. From the car park you can walk about 50m along picturesque paths to the base of the first falls. The track to the top is very steep for 20m then flattens out nicely....More

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.

Great walking trails from Waterfall Gully up to Mt Lofty. The trail was very steep at certain points. The view from the top is of course magnificent, but there are no great view from the trail itself. Quite busy on a Saturday.

Close to Adelaide city. There is a free car park which also has a toilet block at the start of the trail. Beautiful walk with some occasional steep bits. Would recommended to anyone visiting Adelaide.

We love to walk to the falls as the area is very pretty. Lots of Koalas along the walking tracks. While its a long walk to Mt Lofty from the falls it is worth every minute of it. There are some lovely cafes and restaurants...More

Such a great place to hike! We started off the beaten path as we didn't realise there were actual trails closer to the parking area by the summit. Spent an hour in the wilderness and then followed people to the parking lot & located the...More

It only takes a few minutes drive from Adelaide City. And we buth enough power to climb up to Puncak. We saw a great view of Adelaide City. We could also see a kangaroo in the wild. We'll be back here someday.

Waterfall Gully is equally exciting in winter particularly if it has rained. The falls are lovely. There is a lovely walking trail through to the Mount Lofty summit although it is pretty steep in parts but very pretty... 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
