Hostels in Adelaide

by BecTravels11

Hello there! I was wondering if anyone knows about or has stayed in the Adelaide Travellers Inn hostel on 220 Hutt Street? This is a Nomads hostel. I have a free night accommodation there because I booked a Great Ocean Road Tour through Nomads World.

If anyone knows anything, good or bad about this hostel, would love to know! Is this a safe location for a 25 year old woman at night? Any other hostel recommendations? I would like to stay in a hostel with all girls dorms.

Thanks so much for any help!
Rebecca

Hi,

you will find most hostels on www.hostelworld.com they have lots of reviews and pics of the hostels. you should be able to get some info there.

From the website it appears only to have mixed bed dorms and its rating is only 56% but doesn't have a lot of reviews so that is based only only a few people. I have not been there so cannot give a definitive answer.

Thanks, yes I did look at that site and saw the same rating... wasn't sure if I should just base it on that. Figured that since I got a free night accommodation at this hostel, I may as well take advantage of it, though I don't want to stay if it's not a great place.

City of Churches I, The Scots Church

by pchamlis

The city of Adelaide calls itself "The City of Churches", and with good reason. There are numerous large and small houses of worship dotted throughout the city proper. With few exceptions, a visit to each one is worth a few moments of your time. Adelaide's Scots Church is no exception.

The building itself was opened, as the Chalmers Church, in 1851. Subsequent additions included the spire and bell in 1864. Remodeling and renovations occurred throughout the 20th century.

Among the church points of interest are:
The massive oak communion table, dedicated in 1928.

The font, carved in Adelaide from Italian Cararra marble, with a removable silver bowl. The rim of the bowl carries four panels, each with an engraved symbol. The bowl's craftsman was an 81 year old Frenchman living in Sydney, Louis Somme. He died one day after finishing the bowl.

A beautiful pipe organ, installed in 1900.

The pulpit, carved in 1912 from a single piece of solid timber by John K. Blogg of Melbourne. Carved into the pulpit is the image of the burning bush. The rainy and windy afternoon that we stepped into the Scots Church was a noisy one on the streets of Adelaide. The weather, coupled with the city noises seem to have created a din that had begun to wear on weary tourists from America. A few moments inside the peaceful Scots Church was literally a breath of fresh air. We were the only persons in the building for the entire time we visited, some 20 minutes or so. And perhaps, that was the Scots Church purpose for OUR visit to Adelaide. As is said in the church's visitor's brochure, "please feel free to use the church if you feel the need of a quiet time". It served the purpose quite nicely. : )

Also from the "visitors brochure", I add the following contact information:

Minister, the Rev Judity A. Gilliland, B.A., M.Ed, M.Div
(unlike the Catholic Church, the Uniting Church of Australia has embraced
the concept of female ministry!)

Church office, telephone 08 8223 1505, fax 08 8232 6816
admin@scotschurch.org.au

237 North Terrace, Adelaide
(at the corner with Pulteney Street)

The church is open daily, Tuesday-Friday from 9 am - 4 pm

Packing List

by Prosperity

Don't pack anything in vegetable or banana boxes! Good sunglasses have 100 % UV and glare protection. (From AUD 35 in big stores.) The rays also come from above and from the sides. I've never experienced such a bright sunlight anywhere else I've travelled so far. Foot bath powder. Kidney and Bladder strengthening herbal tea when you have your first dehydration. After sunburn cream. You are not allowed to bring food into Australia. Shoes and bike tyres have to be cleaned.

Scott Creek Conservation Park

by Diceman_

This is pretty small for a conservation park but it also has a lot of stuff in it's relatively small area.
It's another one of those nice, out of the way wilderness areas where you can pretend civilisation is a million miles off and has lots of good walking trails. No need to worry about getting lost here as you'll never get too far away from where you parked. Near the car park there are old mining trenches here and there and a mineshaft going in the side of the hill (bring a torch or you'll probably decide give it a miss upon reading the "do not go in without a torch" signs at the entrance.) It takes you back in time and makes you think about these people who went out to the middle of nowhere (as it was at the time) to manually bore their way through solid rock all day long.

Directions:
It's not too far from the city, the simplest way to get there is to take Main Road through and past Blackwood, turn left onto Cherry Gardens Road, then turn right onto Dorset Vale Road which leads to the car park area.

City streets

by Winged about City streets

The obvious place to be in Adelaide at night is the city centre, places like Hindley Street (a slightly seedy area) and Rundle Street (lots of cafes)... if you just walk around (maybe with a couple of other people - Adelaide is a relatively safe place, but it's still not wise to wander city streets at night alone) for a few minutes down some of these main streets you'll surely find some place you like. Aside from that, Adelaide doesn't have a whole lot of nightlife - try hotels, and the entertainment section of The Advertiser newspaper, to see what's on.
