Top of the world … or at least Mount Lofty!

28 11 2008

For the best view of the city of Adelaide … and a great lunch at a terrific cafe-restaurant! — it’s got to be Mount Lofty Summit. This is the highest point in the Mount Lofty Ranges, which rear above the city like castle walls…

The view at night is glorious, as you’d imagine. It’s an easy drive up from the Crafers “park and ride,” and you emerge into a network of wind-blown carparks with national parks all around, and an amazing view at any time of the day:

The rotunda-style building features a great place to dine on one side, and a well-stocked gift shop on the other. Soft toys, teeshirts, books … yes, and postcards!

Even on a hot day, it can be cool(ish) on the summit of Mount Lofty, and it’s almost always windy. On a winter’s day, be sure to take a jacket. The wind can be very strong and surprisingly cold. But having said that, the stronger the wind, the clearer the air … and what a view! And when you’re chilly enough, go right back inside for coffee…
