Mount Lofty House

The Perfect Christmas Party Destination

Mount Lofty House was built in 1852 for Arthur Hardy. It was his summer residence, but it also became a venue for the most lavish parties, where Arthur would take great delight in hosting Adelaide’s high society.

Mount Lofty House has been Adelaide’s favourite destination to celebrate for over 160 years and for very good reason. We offer a range of Christmas celebration experiences including casual long table share dining in the gardens, fine dining in the Adelaide Hills most awarded restaurant to a more traditional private Christmas party complete with live entertainment, Christmas theming and a visit from Santa.

You choose your experience and remember if you can imagine it, we can do it.

Menus start from a 2 course alternate serve menu, bon bons and Christmas tree for $69. Call us now!
