Easy track
Starting from the car park at the end of Hindmarsh Falls Road, Hindmarsh Valley, this walk takes you to Hindmarsh Falls and back. Enjoy a short and easy walk through stunning native bushland to Hindmarsh Falls, an attractive series of cascades and pools that culminate in a 20-metre drop, which can be viewed from a lookout at the end of the path. Along the way, the walk passes a grassy picnic area with wooden tables and a gas barbecue. The picturesque falls are fed by the Hindmarsh River catchment area between Mount Cone and Spring Mount, flowing down through Victor Harbor and out to sea via the Hindmarsh Estuary, and are best viewed in winter and spring or after heavy rainfall. The upper car park is smaller, while the lower car park is adjacent to a picnic area. This walk consists of well-constructed sealed paths, with handrails and some steps, suitable for most fitness levels, but not for prams or wheelchairs. 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.
