The picturesque Hindmarsh Falls are best viewed in winter and spring and after heavy rainfall. The falls are located approximately 18km from Victor Harbor, off Myponga Road.
The falls are fed by the Hindmarsh River catchment area between Mt Cone and Spring Mount, and flows down through Victor Harbor and out to sea via the Hindmarsh Estuary.

To get to the falls from Victor Harbor, take the Victor Harbor to Adelaide Road, travel 8km from the Victor Harbor town centre and turn left onto Hindmarsh Valley Road (Myponga turn off), then travel a further 9km and you will come to the turn off on the left to the falls.
You then travel 1km along a dirt road until you reach the picnic area. You can park here and walk on the concrete path to view the falls which is approximately 600 metres from the picnic area.
There is another parking area 300 metres up the road from the picnic area which can accommodate around three cars, access to the falls is then via a cement walkway and a series of steps, which descend a further 300 metres to the falls viewing area.
