You can get a marvelous view of Adelaide by night from the summit of Mount Lofty, the lights of the city seem to spread out everywhere. It's not all that far from the centre of Adelaide. Best way to get there is by car.

Driving back to Adelaide from pretty little Hahndorf, we decided to try the Mt Lofty Summit and scenic drive. Well, we won’t bother again. The drive is treed out completely, and you have to pay in a car park then walk the rest of the...More

You have to pay to park at the summit car park. We saw a Kuala sleeping in a tree in the car park. Its free to wonder around the viewing area. Good views of the city.

We seldom come to the Summit these days to look at the view, but we are fairly regular patrons of the café. The positives here are the easy parking and the great range of cake – a good combination for those who enjoy their coffee...More

Great spot to see the skyline of Adelaide from a distance. Cafe at the summit is decent except a little on the pricey side but understandable given the location. Well worth doing some of the hiking trails that surround the summit.

Amazing view especially during sunset. The hike is painful but the view around the forest is beautiful. You can see koalas!

Arrived as the sun was setting and then waited until the lights of Adelaide came on. A very special view of the city even though it was very very cold. But it was well worth the wait.
