Located within Belair National Park

The most challenging trail in the park takes you through Echo Tunnel and to the picturesque rock escarpments of the upper and lower waterfalls. Take care at both waterfalls, the escarpment lookouts are not fenced and can be slippery near the cliff edge. Children must be supervised at all times. The trail has some moderate slopes and can become slippery after rain. It is not suitable for prams or strollers.

The trail starts at the Pines area.

Set in beautiful natural bushland, Belair National Park is just 25 minutes from Adelaide city centre. It is the ideal place to get active in the great outdoors. There are woodlands and lakes to explore, walking and mountain biking trails to suit all levels of fitness, plus tennis courts and cricket pitches available for hire.

This is South Australia’s oldest national park, and is home to Old Government House – a significant heritage building. Also in the park is State Flora, the oldest plant nursery in South Australia and still going strong today. The park remains one of the few relatively undisturbed areas of native vegetation in the Adelaide Hills region, making it an important refuge for native plants and animals.
