For more than 100 years, Mori­al­ta Con­ser­va­tion Park has been a well-loved recre­ation­al escape, offer­ing plen­ty to see and do for every­one. Enjoy explor­ing the creek, wood­lands, gorges, and stun­ning water­falls, which will make you feel miles away from the city.

Mori­al­ta Con­ser­va­tion Park is a fan­tas­tic place to vis­it all year round. Vis­it dur­ing win­ter to see the water­falls flow­ing at their strongest, and in spring to see the wild­flow­ers at their brightest. 

If relax­ation is more your thing, enjoy a stroll along First Falls walk to the main water­fall, or have a pic­nic and enjoy a fun-filled day inter­act­ing with nature around the Mukan­thi Play­space. You may even spot a koala or kook­abur­ra in the large gum trees!

For expe­ri­enced rock climbers, Mori­al­ta Rock-climb­ing Zone is the most pop­u­lar nat­ur­al climb­ing area in the state. There are many climbs of vary­ing dif­fi­cul­ty and expo­sure that can be accessed from Climbers Track off Nor­ton Sum­mit Road.

The South Aus­tralian Gov­ern­ment is invest­ing in an upgrad­ed car park near the Mukan­thi Nature Play Space. 

The car park will have approx­i­mate­ly 100 clear­ly marked car park spaces, a des­ig­nat­ed bus drop-off and pick-up space, one entry dri­ve­way and 2 exit driveways. 

New walk­ing paths from the car park will pro­vide safer access for vis­i­tors to the nature play space and beyond. 

Works will begin in ear­ly August 2022 and are expect­ed to be com­plete in late Octo­ber 2022. While works are under­way park­ing will be extreme­ly lim­it­ed, and we strong­ly rec­om­mend that you instead vis­it one of our oth­er metro parks, such as Cle­land Con­ser­va­tion Park or Belair Nation­al Park.

Google Street View

Want to explore a trail before you leave home or use Google Maps to nav­i­gate straight from your door to the trailhead?

We’ve worked with Google to film more than 600km of walk­ing trails, park roads, camp­grounds and water­ways in some of our most beau­ti­ful places. Click to see what the parks offer and the avail­able facil­i­ties before you go. This is an espe­cial­ly great tool if you have acces­si­bil­i­ty needs, are vis­it­ing with peo­ple of vary­ing ages or fit­ness lev­els or are push­ing a pram and want to view a trail before leav­ing home.
