Mount Lofty Sum­mit, the majes­tic peak of the Mount Lofty Ranges in the Ade­laide Hills, pro­vides spec­tac­u­lar panoram­ic views across Ade­laide’s city sky­line to the coast. Each year more than 350,000 peo­ple vis­it the peak which ris­es more than 710 metres above sea level.

From the sum­mit you can fol­low the pop­u­lar walk down to Water­fall Gul­ly, join the Hey­sen Trail or stroll along a walk­ing trail through native bush­land to Cle­land Wildlife Park.
