Summer at Eureka is the third studio album by Australian rock musician Pete Murray. Following his previous two #1 albums, Feeler in 2003 and See the Sun in 2005, Summer at Eureka became his third #1. After the album's release on 17 May 2008, it peaked on the Australian ARIA Albums Chart on 26 May 2008.[2] The album also peaked at #19 on New Zealand's RIANZ charts, and #30 in the Netherlands.[2] In the album's second week after being released, it dropped down to number three on the ARIA Charts.

The first single from the album was "You Pick Me Up", which peaked at #36 on the Australian ARIA Singles Chart.[3] Soon after, "Happy Ground" received radio airplay, without being released as a single.[verification needed] "Saving Grace" was the second single released to iTunes on 19 July, and was released on 23 August on CD, eventually peaking at #44 in Australia. The third single, "Chance to Say Goodbye" was released on 27 March 2009, but did not chart on the ARIA Charts.
