Overview

Back in 1836, surveyor general Colonel William Light designed a layout for the embryonic township of Adelaide. His vision was of a capital city for the freely settled colony of South Australia. Today, a bronze statue of Light still stands on Montefiore Hill and peers down over the ever-changing cityscape of Adelaide. In his journal of 1839, Light wrote "I leave it to posterity to decide whether I am entitled to praise or to blame." Now, it is clear the good colonel rests peacefully in his grave.
