    Have been to Adelaide Oval a few times to watch a football game and it never disappoints. Great oval , food options, great atmosphere and seating.
    Easy access to the oval from the city .

    China town in Moonta Street between Grote and Gouger Streets, near the Adelaide Central Markets.
    Two large Paifang, which were erected by the city council, are guarded by the Chinese guardian lions. These were donated by the Adelaide City council and the Chinese government. They mark the entrances at either end. Adelaide Chinatown consists mainly of Chinese restaurants, grocery stores and markets but also consists of many non-Chinese Asian restaurants offering cuisines of Indian, Japanese, Korean, Malaysian, Nepali, Thai and Vietnamese origins.
    Chinatown Adelaide has hosted the official Lunar New Year Celebrations in Moonta Street since 2003.

    A moving tribute to those who fell, particularly in World War 1, with the names of all (and SO many) killed listed inside the monument.

    Place where the Aboriginal flag was first flown in Australia in 1971. Nice meeting area with green lawns,and a large statue of Victoria! Not much shade in the area.

    On our way back from North Adelaide, we stopped at this little park. It no longer has a panoramic view, but it's looked after well and peaceful.

    Alongside Government House, the memorial walk is unobtrusive. There are a few information plaques along the,walk, some printed panels and the countries of war on the ground.
    A nice place to walk and reflect. Around the corner is the pathway of honour and some other statues in park behind.

    Central location near Victoria Square. An interesting colonial era building and city landmark. Continues to function as a post office.

    We enjoyed a short stop here while on our Barossa tour. Great location for views over he valley and places afar. The greenery of the vineyards was a standout in the dry landscape. Named after one of the original settlers in the area. Well worth stopping here for great vies, the sculpture park and Pioneer Memorial.

    The old army barracks and parade grounds. Numerous memorials around here, and a pleasant atmosphere. Some wonderful gardens as well.

    The drive up was steep, very steep! I take my hat off to those we passed riding and walking up. The views from the top, across Adelaide and the hills were fantastic. When the sign says road ends, the road ends quickly so be prepared. Not much parking space and a short walk up to the lookout.

    It's very difficult to make a multi storey carpark look attractive unless concealed behind a commercial building or residential block where it is out of sight. The 748 panels attached to 40% of the exterior of the Rundle Street carpark is a reasonable attempt to combine practicality of construction with abstract art. Ordinary in daylight, the panels come alive at night when a computerised programme controls the light display that bring the panels alive. Certainly more eye-catching.

    The "War Memorial Drive Tennis Courts" are steeped in history; it is an icon of South Australia. It is now part of "Next Generation Memorial Drive Complex", which includes a gym, spas, pools, sauna and lounge.
    The courts are situated at the back of the members area of Adelaide Oval.
    Since 1921, it has been the home for the "South Australian Tennis Association".
    In 1922 Gerald Patterson won the first South Australian Men's Singles Championships. In 1923 the clubhouse and Northern Grand Stand ( which was a former stand of Adelaide Oval) were erected.
    In 1926, Geelong lefthander John Hawks, became the first winner of the Australian Men's Singles title staged there, but he also won the doubles and mixed doubles, in the same year.
    The last year the "Australian Open" was held at Memorial Drive was 1967.
    Memorial Drive has seen some of Australia's greatest players grace its courts, like Roy Emerson, John Newcombe, Tony Roche and Lleyton Hewitt.
    Memorial Drive was the last place in Australia to remove their grass courts and replace them with rebound ace.
