Mount Lofty Summit, the majestic peak of the Mount Lofty Ranges in the Adelaide Hills, located only 15km east of Adelaide, provides spectacular panoramic views across Adelaide’s city skyline to the coast. Each year more than 350,000 people visit the peak which is more than 710 metres above sea level.

The Summit complex features a gift shop and visitor information. The visitor centre’s gift shop is a great place to shop for quality souvenirs displaying Australian made items, as well as a variety of locally handcrafted gifts. The information centre and gift shop are open daily from 9am to 5pm (closed Christmas Day).  

Adjacent to the visitor centre, take in the views of Adelaide at the fully licensed Summit Restaurant and Café which is open Monday and Tuesday from 9am for breakfast and lunch, and Wednesday to Sunday from 9am to late, for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Bookings essential on 08 8339 2600.

From here, 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.
