Full description
This tour provides an active and immersive experience that enriches the understanding of nature at the Morialta Conservation Park. Start your morning adventure along the Morialta walking trails as the bush wakes from its night slumber. As you follow the trails, discover amazing rock faces, gorges and seasonal waterfalls cascading over sheer quartzite cliffs. Witness the dawn colours bounce on the spectacular rugged vistas and capture the sense of nature while discovering the natural wonders of this national reserve. Morialta is the best place in Adelaide where you can see koalas in the wild. It offers unique biodiversity where many native faunas can be spotted including the occasional kangaroo or echidna. The creeks, rock pools and the higher slopes of the Gorge offer a perfect habitat to several species of frogs and small lizards such as geckos, skinks and dragons. Listen to the sounds and observe the many native birds such as the Superb Fairy-wren, rare Golden Whistler, Rainbow Lorikeet and the iconic Laughing Kookaburra. Use the supplied binoculars and see how many species you can discover. In winter and spring, the park is abundant with native wildflowers including many delicate and colourful orchid species.

We were picked up from the hotel in the morning by Shavojn, our guide, and take a minibus to Morialta Conservation Park. Fortunately for us, we were the only guests (but there are probably only small groups of max. 8 people). Due to the extremely hot temperatures, the 2nd part of our excursion, the BBQ, was unfortunately canceled. We have therefore been reimbursed part of the costs. But we also had such a wonderful experience. Before the hike we each got a bottle of water. It was a great hike to beautiful viewpoints. We saw koalas, kangaroos and various birds including a Laughing Kookaburra. Shavojn was a very competent, considerate and nice guide who made us aware of a lot and explained a lot. You can see her love of nature. We would highly recommend this excursion.
