Sometimes referred to as Light’s Vision, this lookout on Montefiore Hill is named after Colonel William Light, the founding father of Adelaide. During the summer of 1837, Light was put in charge of selecting and surveying the site for the city. A life-sized statue of Colonel Light sits here, having been originally erected in Victoria Square but moved in 1938 to create Light's Vision on top of Montefiore Hill. Local legend says it’s where he looked out and began planning the city.
Today, Colonel Light’s Lookout is a popular site for residents and visitors to get a glimpse of Adelaide’s skyline, so be sure to bring your camera along. Grassy areas at Colonel Light’s Lookout make it a nice spot for adults to stretch their legs and for young kids to run around.
