Cleland Wildlife Park, Adelaide Reviews
Waterfall Gully is part of the Cleland Conservation Park and is such a beautiful picturesque place to visit where you can get up close to the waterfall, go for a hike to the Mt Lofty summit or enjoy a meal or coffee at the Utopia restaurant. It is a great place to take photos. The only negative is it can be very hard to find a car park at times!
Cleland Conservation park offers fantastic walking trails, where one can admire nature at its best and share and admire the beautiful sights and sounds. It is an absolute pleasure to hear the birds in their natural environment and admire the streams and waterfalls with sounds soothing to the mind away from the hustle and bustle of city life. In Spring the plants and flowers are an absolute delight.It is all located within easy drive from Adelaide city.
Im sorry I cant give full rating on park. We were only there for the beautiful tour lunch and did not do complete tour due to fitness issues. Unfortunately, we missed a good trip because we were not told prior to arriving that mobility scooters were available.
Walked from Waterfall Gully to My Lofty and back(4km each way). A very nice walk past a couple of waterfalls and through the bush. It was a steady climb for the first 2 km then it gets steeper. It took me a hour to get from the car park at the bottom to the top. A lovely view over Adelaide from the top. There is a cafe/shop at the top of you want refreshment. If you don't want to walk it you can also drive to the top. Bit I would say that is cheating.
There's just something about being outdoors and among nature. It soothes the soul. Cleland is one of those places where you can coexist with native animals so are tame enough to interact with, without being drugged-up or pets. I like coming up here to enjoy the space and calm, and be grateful for the opportunities that living in this beautiful country offers ❤️❤️
