Punchbowl Lookout Walk is a 2km, grade 2 Return hike located in Onkaparinga River National Park and Recreation Park South Australia. The hike should take approximately 1hrs to complete.

Summary

A new trail due to open in the first week of September 2017 as part of the Government of South Australia’s $10 million upgrade of the Adelaide’s national parks.

The 1km (2km return) trail visits a new lookout above The Punchbowl, where you can see spectacular views into the Onkaparinga Gorge. The trail is a consistent one metre wide and made of compacted gravel, and with gentle contoured gradients, so as such is suitable suitable for people of all abilities, including those with mobility access issues, wheelchairs and prams. There is some seating mid-way along the trail.

The Hike begins from the new carpark constructed in 2017, between gates 8 and 9 on Piggott Range Road. There are toilets at the nearby Sundews Carpark, near Gate 11 on Piggott Range Road.

View an alternative 6km loop trail to reach the Lookout begins from Sundews Carpark.
