Great place to start a hike to Mt Lofty, lovely view of the waterfall as you enter the car park. There is a kiosk and restaurant as well.

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.

I live in North Queensland (where waterfalls abound) and there is nothing I love more than waterfall chasing but this one you cannot swim at unfortunately. It was very difficult indeed to heed the 'do not swim' signs when confronted with such a nice waterfall...More

Had a very good midday meal during the week. Wine also available but driving therefore none. Friendly service. Great job of rebuilding.

An incredible hike with views that take your breath away! Went midweek outside of school holidays and had the place to ourselves! Had a chill in the water, was relaxing, then enjoyed a picnic! Recommend 💯

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

Waterfall Gully is a beautiful place and also very popular. It was really difficult to find a parking space on a Sunday morning. It was an easy walk to the waterfall. It is a beautiful sight. Good place to start a hike too. Surprisingly fast...More

this place is a must to go to in spring, put on some sneakers and walk up the walking trail or drive straight up the top to the cafe/restaurant and enjoy the views.

Great place to visit any time of the year and enjoying a nice walk. Great for picnic and plenty of rooms for kids to run around. Looks amazing in autumn
