This morning we depart early to hit the popular Waterfall Gully to Mount Lofty trail. After arrival we receive an orientation of the trail including points of interest. There are many places to stop along the way and you can take the hike at your own pace stopping at the places that interest you.
It is a challenging hike to the summit. Just under 4km the trail rises 400 meters, meandering up and down around the mountain ridge. The scenery is beautiful through the Stringybark forest with ferns cascading over the trail in places. The trail climbs past waterfalls, along streams and gully ridges. Save some of your energy as the last 1 km is the steepest part. It will be worth it as you reach the top and be rewarded with an amazing view of Adelaide and beyond.
Just down from the Summit is another beautiful bush track leading to the Cleland Wildlife Park. Re-energise at the Cleland Café on arrival (own expense) before exploring the 35 hectare park on the self-discovery trails. Walk among the free roaming animals in their natural environment. Stop to feed the kangaroos and wallabies. Be sure to visit Australia’s cutest inhabitants with the Koala ‘close up’ experience. It is an amazing experience seeing Australian animals, up close and in their natural environment. After our nature experience it is time to head back in the city to rest up.
Day tour is comprised of 2 half day tours. If you would like to book Mount Lofty or Cleland Wildlife Park separately please contact us.
