Mannum Waterfalls from lower car park
45 min to 1 h 30 min
Starting from the Mannum Waterfalls lower car park on Cascade Road, Mannum, this walk takes you to the Mannum Waterfalls and back. Located to the southwest of Mannum, near the base of the eastern Mount Lofty Ranges, are the Mannum Waterfalls, consisting of large granite outcrops that rise from the plains around Reedy Creek to form several small cascades and rock pools. The falls are accessible from the lower car park, which has picnic facilities, toilets and ample parking, meandering along the creek gully past interesting granite rock formations, with good opportunities for spotting native birds and animals. This walk consists of gently undulating walking trails, with some creek crossings and uneven rocky terrain, suitable for moderate fitness levels. The falls are best seen in winter, when heavy rain fills the creeks, and can also be accessed from the upper car park, which makes for a shorter but steeper walk. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
