Colonel William Light

This is a statue of Colonel William Light, the first surveyor general of South Australia who planned the city of Adelaide. His plan incorporated a city of wide streets, five squares and a belt of parklands encircling the city. Click here to see a map. The statue is located on Montefiore Hill which overlooks the city.
