First time hiker! People recommended this track as I am a beginner! It took me about 1.2 hours to complete with many breaks but once you reach the top there's a great sense of achievement! the last 2k is the killer!

Nice easy track with some elevation. Was quite dry and few wild life around when I trekked it in late October.

Is dog friendly.

the walk going down the hill was easy but going up was a bit hard the views of backstairs passage were great

the walk going down was ok it was the going up that was a bit hard still enjoyed the walk very nice views of backstairs passage

Great average hike for rookie hikers. Amazing sense of achievement when reaching the top.
Hike takes about 1.5 hours one way.
Highly recommend.

It’s been the favourite for many years now. In terms of fitness, I have seen the results come real quick while I was doing it every week.

Beautiful trail and a perfect opening to the Heysen trail. Verry well maintained and indicated, with perfect little steps to get over the fences. Not a lot of shade initially but the final climb has a nice amount of trees for a little sun protection.

A really nice hike through the Bunyeroo Gorge, lots of beautiful red cliffs and nice shade throughout the walk. The only downside to the hike was the last 500m. It is a bit of an anti-climax as it ends outside of the gorge and has no shade or view compared the the rest of the walk. Make sure you look out for the goats hiding in the cliffs!

fantastic one!

very nice trail, long but good

Ran the reverse (Kapunda to Tanunda). Great mix of dirt road, bush trails and farm land. Well signed, great scenery from start to finish!

Lovely track

Good walk

What a nice hike, the creek is wonderful, wildlife is rich, the waterfall is quiet. The steep sections require good shoes and to be confident on rocky paths.
$10 fees apply for a day entry permit.

When I was there the trail was under construction so I missed some of the waterfall action and the detours were in the sun :(

Still a nice trip and the top is cute with a gift shop and cafe.

A great walk to enjoy Australian coastal flora and spot western gray kangaroos. In spring sections of tracks going down the ocean you can see native orchids.
