Waterfall gully is a glorious walk in the Adelaide hills , and if you are fit will take you high up into the hills overlooking the city. Unfortunately , the cafe was damaged during the recent floods, and the lack of government support has forced it to close. This was the only source of refreshment after a walk so make... More

Waterfall Gully is such a hidden gem in Adelaide and yet only about 20 minutes from the heart of the city. There are several walking trails and the waterfall was utterly beautiful after unseasonally high rainfall. I have bad knees and yet was still able to climb to the top of the first waterfall easily. Highly recommended.

Started here to walk up to Mt Lofty Summit and a stunning start it is. The waterfall is beautiful. Still some fencing up following the recent storms, but this does not dtrect from the beauty

We visited after the recent floods. Hadn't been up the Gully in a number of years and it was good to visit again and see the water really flowing. Shame that the Cafe was closed (this was before their rockfall closed them) and no opening hours listed anywhere as we'd have liked to have patronised them. We'll come back again... More

If you've got a lot of time in Adelaide, or if you've not had much experience in the Aussie bush...or if you just want a great and rewarding bushwalk within 10 minutes (5 in good traffic) from the CBD then check out Waterfall Gully by all means! Nestled just slightly southern inside Adelaide's Eastern suburbs, waterfall gully provides a safe... More

It's a beautiful place but much of it appears to be closed (25th Sept) due to heavy rain and flooding. There's been a lot of erosion. But the bottom of the falls is still easily accessible and the area beautiful so still a good lazy Sunday driving visit.
