Waterfall Gully

Located in Cleland Conservation Park, Waterfall Gully is home to the largest of seven waterfalls in the park.

The popular walking trail to Mt Lofty Summit starts at the Waterfall Gully car park and travels through the park's steep hills covered with native vegetation and stringybark forest, providing spectacular views over Adelaide.

Stop for a bite to eat at the Utopia @ Waterfall Gully restaurant. Housed in a historic Swiss-style chalet built in 1911, it is the only restaurant in Australia set as the base of a waterfall.


Waterfall Gully is located 8km east of Adelaide. Access is via Waterfall Gully Road.
