What to Expect
Your morning begins with a pickup from your Adelaide hotel. Hop aboard your tour vehicle, meet your guide, and drive out of the city to Waterfall Gully—the trailhead of one of Adelaide’s most popular hikes. Along the way, your guide gives a brief trail orientation. Upon arrival, set off at your own pace following the 2.5-mile (3.9-kilometer) trail past waterfalls, streams, and panoramic views from gully ridges. Keep an eye out for koalas dozing in gum trees and grazing kangaroos. Snap photos of panoramic views of Adelaide from the summit of Mt. Lofty. On a clear day, Glenelg, Port Adelaide, and Kangaroo Island are visible. You have time to snag coffee or a snack at the Summit Café before heading back down to Waterfall Gully. Your tour concludes when your driver drops you off at your hotel in Adelaide.

Our driver was most professional and very careful in orienting us to the path we were going to follow. I was very happy to find that we did not need to return via the same path we used in our ascent. The trail itself was paved on the ascent, and not at all slippery even though

My favourite parts were walking between tall trees, hearing water flowing on the streams on the side of the trails, each waterfall has their own uniqueness, seeing wildflowers, ferns, birds that I have not seen before! It's a great workout and it feels very reward to finally

This was an excellent experience. We are not experienced hikers so found it hard going, especially as a large section of the normal trail was closed for renovations and we were diverted to the adventure trail. However it was amazing and the view from the top well worth it. Mike
