Morialta’s unspoilt wilderness is sure to bring out the natural explorer within you!

  • Explore the bush trails to discover the Valley Walk, Kookaburra Rock, Giant’s Cave, Morialta Falls Plateau and Eagles Nest Lookout.
  • See many native animals within their natural environment including amazing birdlife and wild koalas amongst the gum trees. Learn about the park’s early history, native plants and animals.
  • As the trails come to an end, relax and revitalise with a delicious local produce lunch while reflecting on your adventures!

Unique nature based experience - Morialta is part of the traditional lands of the Kaurna people and derives its name from the aboriginal word ‘Moriatta’ meaning ever flowing! The waterfalls, gorges and 500 hectares of natural bushland in Morialta have provided a popular escape for locals over the past 100 years. This tour provides an active and immersive experience that enriches the understanding of nature and the importance of looking after it.

Bushwalking wilderness - start your morning adventure along the Morialta walking trails as the bush wakes from its night slumber. Witness the dawn colours bounce on the spectacular rugged vistas and capture the sense of nature while discovering the natural wonders of this national reserve.

Admire native animals in the wild - Morialta is the best place in Adelaide where you can see koalas in the wild! It offers a unique biodiversity where many native fauna can be spotted including the occasional kangaroo or echidna. The creeks, rock pools and the higher slopes of the Gorge offer a perfect habitat to several species of frogs and small lizards.

Visit all three waterfalls- the seasonal waterfalls along Fourth Creek are one of the best known features of the park. Morialta Falls and Second Falls are the grandest, each cascading over sheer quartzite cliffs. Nestled at the end of the trail is the less visited but most tranquil Third Falls.

Amazing birdlife and wildflowers - listen to the sounds and observe the many native birds such as the Superb Fairy-wren, rare Golden Whistler, Rainbow Lorikeet and the iconic Laughing Kookaburra. Every winter and spring the park is abundant with native wildflowers.
