Escape the bustle of the city and get amongst nature with a hiking adventure from Waterfall Gully to Mt Lofty combined with a wildlife experience at Cleland. Your guide will lead you on a 4km trek to the picturesque summit, followed by a 2km trail to Cleland to engage with some unique wildlife.
Enjoy a short scenic drive from the city to Cleland National Park for a day out amongst nature and wildlife. You'll start your day at the trailhead of Adelaide's most popular hike at Waterfall Gully, to start your 4km trek to Mt Lofty. Follow your guide at your set pace and expect to take 1-2 hours wandering through the wilderness and coming across waterfalls and gully ridges before reaching the summit. You'll be rewarded with panoramic views overlooking the stunning Adelaide Plains, Gulf St. Vincent and beyond.
Grab a coffee at the summit cafe and take a moment to soak up the fresh mountain air, before taking the trails again and jumping on a bush track that will take you to Cleland Wildlife Park. Here you'll have spend the afternoon exploring the vast 35-hectare park at your own leisure with plenty of spectacular wildlife to see. Enjoy walking freely amongst the animals, hand feed the kangaroos and wallabies, visit the wetland birds, and meet the cutest inhabitants with a close up encounter with the koalas. Enjoy a scenic drive back to the city to end an unforgettable day.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
