Come and discover the history behind Adelaide’s founder and designer Colonel William Light in a location-based mobile adventure.

Standing on Montefiore Hill, legend has it, Light choose the location for the city of Adelaide and soon started his now famous design of the city street plan. What most people don't know is that Light left a secret message in his city design for all future visitors to Adelaide to discover. A message not easy to decipher, not known by many people and only visible to those that come and play "The Mystery of the Colonel's Ghost through the streets of Adelaide.
