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.
