Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Have been here many times by bike and car. This time we hiked from Waterfall Gully to Mt Lofty. Scenic views. Waterfalls are small in comparison to many others but the best in Adelaide. Ample parking available and multiple toilets.

    Excellent hiking trail with scenic views. Plenty of rest stops when hiking from Waterfall Gully to Mt Lofty. Some steep parts but not for long.

    I wasn't going to review Black Hill as a hiking trail because I thought it would be good for it to stay a well kept secret - but heck that's mean! Currently training for a hike in Corsica and Sardinia and Black Hill is just perfect - there is a 6 hour/17kms round hike you can do with a couple of really mean hills thrown in. If you include Ghost Gully, Orchard Track and walk along Montacute road for about 1-1/2 kms you can join up with the mean mother Quarry track and head back down from the summit via Summit Nature trail back to where you started from. And it is lovely pristine bush when you stop for a breather!

    Nice bird watching area on the edge of the Adelaide CBD that’s worth a look if your a birder. Worth a look

    The work that the council has done in this area has made it a very nice part of the linear park. The plants are really nice and there are places to sit and relax. It is a great improvement to the torrens.

    Great little tour along the Torrens with an expert friendly guide.

    When your not blessing out bird viewing, enjoy the beautiful Torrens scenery.

    This reserve lies at the south end of Carrick Hill Drive, south of the city. As the name suggests, it was once a quarry, but much of it is now a level grassed area. There is an ample carpark, and from here a view out over the plains to the city. On the other side is a steep cliff with signboards describing the various geological formations. At the far end is an unlocked gate with ‘Danger’ signs! We have been in here many times previously with our children, before the Council sanitised it with fences and made it boring! There are steep cliff faces and wonderful places to explore, and all perfectly safe with a little common sense. From here is is possible to follow tracks up to the Brownhill summit, and down to the Brownhill Creek. All well worth doing, and an interesting outing.

    Keep an eye on road signage and get along to the Fair. There is yummy and cheap home made food. There are stalls and cheap things galore to be found. It's a great morning out for the whole family.
