Fourth Creek Walk – Morialta Conservation Park

Adelaide & Adelaide Hills
Start Point Morialta Conservation Park Picnic Area
End Point First Falls Car Park
Distance 1.4km
Time 45 Minutes – Walking

1.4kms one way, 1-2 hours return

Follow Fourth Creek from the picnic area, allow plenty of time for the kids to explore, count koalas, or listen to the “bonk” of the Southern Banjo Frog.

Enjoy the rugged ridges, gully scenery and seasonal waterfalls that make up Morialta Conservation Park. The three waterfalls along Fourth Creek are popular features of the park and are linked by an extensive network of walking trails. The views from the rock climbing zone also provide opportunities to admire Morialta Gorge and the nearby Adelaide plains.

The first two falls are the grandest, each cascading over sheer quartzite cliffs after rain. To see the falls at their best, visit the park during spring or winter when the water flow is strongest. For wildlife lovers, the park’s rock pools and creeks provide habitat for small reptiles, frogs and birds. Watch out for honeyeaters and thornbills among the woodlands that cover the hills.
