The Aim of the Society is “to uncover, publish and preserve the history of the Mount Lofty districts”.
The Mount Lofty Districts Historical Society takes its name from Mount Lofty, one of South Australia’s best known landmarks, overlooking the city of Adelaide.
Within these pages you will find a wealth of information about the history of the district which surrounds Mount Lofty and the means to access much more through our History Centre and Archive .
We specialise not only in the history of the local region but also the history of the gardens which were established in this area early in South Australia’s colonisation, thanks to our unique climate.
