This is a very good boulevard to walk along due to the quality attractions on offer which are situated there. Itvisbalso on the Adelaide Connection bus route so you'll be able to get there for free or little cost. Well worth the effort to visit.

On a visit to Adelaide My wife and I went for a walk along North Terrace. This must be one of the most beautiful city boulevards is Australia with its fine public buildings. The war memorial is impressive as is the columned state parliament building.
