Starting from the car park at Gate 15 near the Pink Gum Campground on Chapel Hill Road, Blewitt Springs, this walk takes you to a waterhole on Onkaparinga River via the River Hike track. This hike takes you across open grassy areas down into Onkaparinga Gorge, providing spectacular views across the gorge as it leads to the edge of the waterhole. The walk starts along gentle slopes but becomes steeper as you descend into the gorge. The trail narrows as it approaches the river, going through some slightly overgrown and rocky sections. Cool off with a dip in the waterhole, or just relax at the waterside and enjoy the scenery before heading back. 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.
