Morialta is part of the traditional lands of the Kaurna people and derives its name from the aboriginal word ‘Moriatta’ meaning ever flowing! The waterfalls, gorges and 500 hectares of natural bushland in Morialta have provided a popular escape for locals over the past 100 years. This tour provides an active and immersive experience that enriches the understanding of nature and the importance of looking after it.
Start your morning adventure along the Morialta walking trails as the bush wakes from its night slumber. As you follow the trails, discover amazing rock faces, gorges and seasonal waterfalls. Witness the dawn colours bounce on the spectacular rugged vistas and capture the sense of nature while discovering the natural wonders of this national reserve.
Morialta is the best place in Adelaide where you can see koalas in the wild! It offers a unique biodiversity where many native animals can be spotted including the occasional kangaroo or echidna. The creeks, rock pools and the higher slopes of the Gorge offer a perfect habitat to several species of frogs and small lizards such as geckos, skinks, and dragons.
The seasonal waterfalls along Fourth Creek are one of the best known features of the park. Morialta Falls and Second Falls are the grandest, each cascading over sheer quartzite cliffs. Nestled at the end of the trail is the less visited but most tranquil Third Falls – be stunned by its peaceful and natural setting and take the time to listen to the softly cascading water.
Listen to the sounds and observe the many native birds such as the Superb Fairy-wren, rare Golden Whistler, Rainbow Lorikeet and the iconic Laughing Kookaburra. Use the supplied binoculars and be amazed by how many species you can discover. Every winter and spring the park is abundant with native wildflowers including many delicate and colourful orchid species.
