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.

The visitor centre's gift shop is a great place for quality souvenirs. The shop displays Australian made items, as well as a variety of locally handcrafted gifts.
