About this assessment
The Australian Heritage Council found the Adelaide Park Lands and City Layout is an outstanding example of early colonial planning, retaining to this day key elements of its 1837 layout. Attributed to Colonel William Light, the Plan is a major achievement in nineteenth century town planning, and realised in the construction of Adelaide marks a significant turning point in the settlement of Australia.
In some cases the Minister will have made amendments to such matters as boundaries, values and descriptions, before listing the place. For final listing data visit the Australian Heritage Database or the National Heritage Listing for the Adelaide Park Lands and City Layout .
