Colonel Light Gardens  South Australia

Soldier, engineer and surveyor, Colonel William Light might have had his problems with the early administrators of the colony of South Australia, but history decrees that the City of Adelaide stands as testimony to his planning genius.

His name certainly lives on in statues, buildings and the history books as the man who laid down the blueprint for one of Australia’s most liveable cities.

It is fitting, too, that his name should be given to the delightful inner Adelaide suburb of Colonel Light Gardens in a city justifiably renowned for its magnificent parks and reserves which fan out from the River Torrens.

The suburb is also on the train line linking the inner city with such delightful regional parks as Shepherds Hill Recreation Park and the 835ha Belair National Park, which protects a large, undisturbed tract of the natural Mt Lofty Ranges habitat.

History of course, also reveals that Light succeeded in completing his basic design of Adelaide in spite of the opposition of a powerful clique led by founding Governor John Hindmarsh.
