It was surprisingly challenging with the last 1km-1.5km being a steep uphill climb and I admit I needed to stop and catch my breathe a few times. The 8km took me just under 2 hrs and the view at the top was amazing! It was...More

It is better to go on sunny days to enjoy more. However it is always very beautiful and awesome. You can go by car or by walk. Is a must to visit if you come to Adelaide.

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
