Morialta Falls Plateau Circuit is a 4.1km, grade 3 Circuit hike located in Morialta Conservation Park South Australia. The hike should take approximately 2hrs to complete.


Morialta Conservation Park is a bushwalker’s paradise and the 30-metre First Falls is one of its highlights.

This steep walk passes Giants Cave and offers spectacular views of Morialta Gorge’s towering cliffs, the Adelaide Plains, the city and the coast as well as providing views of the First Falls, which flow in winter and autumn.

The walk can be walked clockwise, or anticlockwise. The walk can be commenced from either the First Fall Carpark at the end of the road in (4.1km), or from the more easily parked-at Lower Carpark on Stradbroke Road (6.9km) by first following the Fourth Creek Walk.

Extend the hike by walking the Three Falls Grand Hike, which takes in all three of the falls.
