Mount Bonython () is one of two major peaks in the Adelaide hills visible from Adelaide. The other, about a kilometre to the south and some 20 m higher, is Mount Lofty. There is a telecommunications tower used for the Telstra NextG network located at its summit., 682 m (2,238 ft) above sea level
According to the mythology of the indigenous Kaurna people, the Mount Lofty Ranges were part of the story of the ancestor-creator Nganno. Nganno travelled across the land of the Kaurna and after being wounded in a battle, lay down to die and formed the Mount Lofty Ranges. The current name of the Greater Mount Lofty Parklands, Yurrebilla, is taken from the Kaurna name for the twin hills of Mount Lofty and Mount Bonython, which are supposed to be Nganno's ears.
