INTRODUCTION

Ingalalla Falls turned out to be one of the casualties of the drought that really hit most of southeastern Australia during our November 2006 trip. As you can see from the photo above, it was trickling and just mostly a wet rock face with a calm plunge pool. That said, I was a bit surprised to even see the waterfall trickling considering we were in the country's driest state combined with the drought conditions. The gate entrance to the picnic area by the falls was actually closed during our visit (not sure if it was due to the total fire ban or something) so we ended up parking the car outside the gate, then hopped over it to see the falls. And from looking around the area, it wasn't clear why the area happened to be closed on the day of our visit.

The waterfall itself was small as it was probably no greater than 10m (possibly even smaller than that). It seemed like this was more of a picnic spot as I recalled seeing quite a few picnic tables in a somewhat open grassy area near where the car park was. But given the state of the falls, I didn't spend too much time here nor did I bother to explore whether there were additional hiking options available.

Although we didn't take the time to visit Kangaroo Island, it seemed like Ingalalla Falls could be a resonable stop along the way to the sealink for that island.

DRIVING DIRECTIONS

We drove about 77km south of Adelaide CBD to the town of Normanville on the Fleurieu Peninsula using the A13 and B23 highways. Within Normanville, we left the Main South Road (B23) and turned left to head south on Hay Flat Rd (parts of which was unsealed) for about 10km until we saw the signed turnoff for Ingalalla Falls on the right.

Overall, this 86km drive had taken us about 90 minutes.
