Morialta Falls Valley Walk is a 1.7km, grade 1 return hike, located in Morialta Conservation Park, South Australia. The hike should take approximately 45 mins to complete.

Hike Summary

Follow Fourth Creek to the heart of Morialta Gorge, on the valley floor along a stroller accessible trail.

During summer the creek is dry. After autumn and winter rains, water tumbles thirty metres from the top of Morialta's best known landmark, First Falls.

The hike begins from the top carpark, or you can commence from the lower carpark on Stradbroke Road.

The hike is accessible by Adelaide Metro bus, from bus stop 27 on Stradbroke Road, by bus routes H30S and H33.

About the region

Enjoy the rugged ridges, gully scenery and seasonal waterfalls that make up Morialta Conservation Park. The three waterfalls along Fourth Creek are popular features of the park and are linked by an extensive network of walking trails. The views from the rock climbing zone also provide opportunities to admire Morialta Gorge and the nearby Adelaide plains.

The first two falls are the grandest, each cascading over sheer quartzite cliffs after rain. To see the falls at their best, visit the park during spring or winter when the water flow is strongest. For wildlife lovers, the park's rock pools and creeks provide habitat for small reptiles, frogs and birds. Watch out for honeyeaters and thornbills among the woodlands that cover the hills.

Getting there

The hike is accessible by Adelaide Metro bus, from bus stop 27 on Stradbroke Road, by bus routes H30S and H33.
