Indulge in some boutique shopping
Rundle Mall lies in the heart of the city and offers the most quintessential Adelaide shopping experience. This pedestrian-only strip covers it all, from big name stores to independent boutiques.
The heritage-listed Adelaide Arcade is here too, so make sure you take a wander and you may just discover some hidden gems. Local pop-up shops and art exhibitions are often rotating around this historic arcade, so it’s a great place to pick up a unique little souvenir.
Outside the mall is the East End’s Rundle Street, a hub for upmarket shopping. Pop your head around the corner into some of the laneways - you’ll find some funky vintage boutiques and cafes.
Sample local and international foods
All that shopping can work up a hunger, and Adelaide Central Markets have you covered. A favourite of locals and visitors alike, meander through the countless eateries and sample a variety of multicultural tastes.
This is also the place to take your tastebuds on a tour through the whole state of South Australia. The market’s guided tours will introduce you to the state’s best produce, from the Riverland region’s fruit to the Eyre Peninsula’s seafood.
Embrace your inner art critic
Head to the Adelaide’s cultural boulevard, North Terrace, and you’ll find some seriously impressive art galleries and museums.
The South Australian Museum, home to the world’s largest display of Aboriginal artefacts, is a great starting point.
Next door is the stunning Art Gallery of South Australia which showcases some of Australia’s best art collections and exhibitions.
Make sure you also hop on over to Adelaide’s funky West End precinct, where you’ll find JamFactory- a unique non-for-profit centre promoting the works of local artists.
