This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: pureSA, 111 Franklin St, Adelaide, South Australia 5000 Australia

After hotel pickup from central Adelaide, relax on the 30-minute drive to Morialta Conservation Park. You’ll travel by minivan with a small group limited to eight passengers. En route, learn from your guide about the region, which is part of the traditional lands belonging to the aboriginal Kaurna people. Translated as ‘ever flowing,’ Morialta offers visitors a look at three seasonal waterfalls that cascade down sheer quartzite cliffs in the 1,236-acre (500-hectare) bushland.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Morialta Conservation Park, Stradbroke Road 10km North East of Adelaide, Woodforde, South Australia 5072 Australia

On arrival, set off on foot along hiking trails with your guide, and walk to rugged vistas to observe the morning light reflected on rock faces in the national reserve. You’ll come upon the grand Morialta Falls and Second Falls. The less-visited and more tranquil Third Falls is nestled at the end of the trail. Take time to listen to the softly cascading water in this peaceful setting along Fourth Creek.

It’s likely you’ll spot koalas amid the diverse wildlife, including the occasional kangaroo or echidna. The creeks, rock pools, and higher slopes of the gorge offer an ideal habitat to several species of frogs and small lizards such as geckos, skinks, and dragons. Listen to the sounds of native birds such as the superb fairy-wren, rare golden whistler, rainbow lorikeet, and laughing kookaburra. See how many species you can discover, and search for delicate orchid species and other wildflowers that are abundant each winter and spring.

Finish off with a delicious picnic lunch.
