Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We took the South Australia wine tasting experience in advance of a day trip to the Barossa Valley the following day. Very interesting & informative with a good tasting and food pairing experience to conclude.

    In order to go to Angus Street, my taxi went through North Terrace. As I hadn't been there for a very long time since the bus route had changed, it was really nice to see the familiar buildings like the railway station, parlament house, museum, etc.

    Lovely English mansion beautifully preserved with spectacular views back to Adelaide. We went on the guided tour which was conducted by a volunteer who gave us a wonderful insight to the history of the couple and their house. Morning tea was Burnt Butter baked biscuits (original recipe) discovered in the Hayward family recipe book - crisp and delicious. Apparently a new larger cafe is being built in the near future. A lot of families were also having picnics in the spacious grounds with room for children to roll and play on the grass.

    This is one of the most compelling memorials I have experienced. The layout and placement within the popular North Terrace is seen by 10s of thousands of people every day. The memorial is home to the states memorial dawn service which is extremely moving if you attend.
    The memorial itself has beautifully crafted sculptures and is visually beautiful and moving. It is kept in great condition and continues to commemorate the men who paid the ultimate sacrifice so many years ago.

    Haighs Chocolates are in this building in Rundle Mall since 1915. It is a State Heritage place. The present building was built in 1895, but it was a draper's shop from 1849 to 1886.It was built three storeys above the pavement and was Gothic in character. The neo-Gothic facade and prominent tourelle were refurbished in 1998

    We visited a couple of times on our trip and at the 11am Sunday Mass we were treated to the Schola from Montserrat in Barcelona who were in Adelaide for the Fringe. They sang beautifully.

    Had to visit Chinatown. We usually visit Chinatown whenever we travel. It was what you’d expect however I was surprised at how small it was. Not all the restaurants were opened for lunch but we had a great yum cha there. I was looking forward to a short soup but couldn’t find a place open that sold it.
    Also I was disappointed because central market was closed on Sunday? It’s closed Sunday and Monday.
    In any case Chinatown is worth going.

    The Adelaide Town Hall opened in 1866 and is National Trust classified and a State Heritage Place. The City of Adelaide Town Hall complex includes the Town Hall and the office building at 25 Pirie Street.

    I enjoyed the free tour of Parliament House. Our guide showed us both the House of Assembly, which sits in the Green Room, and the Legislative Council, which sits in the Red Room.

    The official name is The Spheres but known as the Mall Balls Statue,. The Hindmarsh Building Society donated it in 1977 to the City of Adelaide to mark the society’s centenary. It is just over 13 feet.

    Rundle St is full of alley ways and stores. This one was fun to go through although not all the stores are full, sign of returning from covid. Worth seeing.

    I spent a few hours here on a quiet Sunday morning before having to catch a flight. Very peaceful and beautiful historical representation of old Adelaide. I grabbed a self guided map on my way in and found it easy enough to follow it around.
