Only 25 minutes from Adelaide – at the base of the Adelaide Hills – the rugged gorge system of Morialta Conservation Park is a thriving habitat for native wildlife. Encourage your kids to keep an eye out for a Koala or three!
The First Falls Valley Walk is accessed from the car park and takes approx 25 mins one way. The sealed track has slight gradient all the way and is both pram and wheelchair (with assistance) accessible.
The walkway includes several bridges which cross the meandering creek. View the impressive First Falls from a boardwalk and platform. Winter and Spring offer the strongest flows.
Entrance fees apply.
The park is open to vehicle traffic from 8.30am to 15 minutes before sunset – make sure you don’t dawdle and get locked in!
Gates are closed Christmas Day.
