Waterfall Gully Tours

Waterfall Gully
Urban areas aren’t usually known for their close proximity to waterfalls, but Adelaide offers a pleasant surprise with popular Waterfall Gully. Just 25 minutes outside the city, Waterfall Gully has hiking trails that lead to multiple waterfalls, the first of which, First Falls, is a very short walk from the parking lot. Continue up toward the second falls, and take in the scenery where koalas lazily hang in the canopy of gum trees.

The most popular hike in Waterfall Gully is following the trail for 2.5 miles up to the top of Mt. Lofty, where the mountaintop lookout has sweeping views of Adelaide and the coast. By joining a self-guided hiking tour, transport is provided from the center of Adelaide to the Waterfall Gully trailhead, where you’re free to make the climb to Mt. Lofty and enjoy the walk at your pace.

Insider Tip: If driving your own car, plan to arrive early—very early—in hopes of finding a parking spot.

Practical Info

There is no fee to visit Waterfall Gully, but if you choose to hike from Mount Lofty Summit there’s a fee to park near the lookout. There are small cafés at each end of the hike, and be sure to bring water along for the hike since the steep climbs can be challenging.
Address: Waterfall Gully, Adelaide, South Australia, Australia
