I think this is a MUST DO when in Adelaide.
North Terrace is 1.6km long, and quite an easy walk. It is along here where I think the most interesting buildings are. I love walking along here, seeing the old buildings and going inside many of them!
The walk takes you past the Casino, Anglican Holy Trinity church, Parliament and Government House, State Library of South Australia, the South Australian Museum, Art Gallery and the University. Ayer's House is on the other side of the road. Further on, is the entrance to the Botanic Gardens.
Check out the board in my photo, make sure you have your comfortable shoes on, and enjoy the walk.
IT WILL TAKE QUITE A LONG TIME IF YOU POP INTO ALL THE BUILDINGS!
Incredible scenery and quite the good workout at about 7.2 kms one way!
This trail is fantastic - we just did part of it yesterday and the views were amazing! The part we covered was from Kingston Park to Hallett Cove and back.
We even saw 5 seals splashing around in the surf!!
Take warm enough clothing if it is a cold day since it gets quite windy.
Go to the website below to see some photos.
Pick up a free "Adelaide & Suburbs" map at the airport or in any tourist information office. There is a "3 hour city walk and arcades map" in it with 21 highlight tourist spots (churches, historical buildings, museums, galleries, botanic garden etc).
Check my photos about the City
Central Adelaide is set up in a simple grid system. At the center of the grid lies Victoria Square. Five blocks or so from the square, the city is framed by four terraces, the appropriately named North, South, East and West Terraces. A walking tour starting at the North Terrace and taking in Rundle Street, Rundle Mall, Hindley Street, King William Street, and Gouger Street will bring you past most of Adelaide’s interesting sites, including parliament and government houses, the state library, museums and galleries, two universities, the botanic gardens, Adelaide’s main shopping strip, its two primary restaurant rows, and its central market. Taken at a leisurely pace, the tour will take you the better part of a day.
