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.

    Bustling location with every food imaginable.
    Lots of cafes and kiosks to sample tasty fare.
    Roving musicians keep the crowd entertained.

    A free and amazing way to travel form the city centre to this delightful seaside town is must if visiting Adelaide. This was recommended by friend and we had a delightful afternoon by the beach and town.

    This museum is situated next door to the Art Gallery of South Australia and can be visited sequentially with it. As the State has been in existence for less than two hundred years its collection has its limitations. Nevertheless, there is an abundance of exhibits about the natural history of the area together with a large section based on local earlier aboriginal settlements. The star exhibit is a giant squid which can be viewed from galleries on separate floors.
    Highly recommended.

    Rundle St has a pedestrian outdoor mall and then the enclosed portion. Very nice to wander here and to do some shopping. There are performers on the mall most of the day and early evening so it was most interesting to repeatedly walk through here.

    We spent a happy 45 minutes wandering through the stacks and reading the old maps at this historical site. Worth a visit as you explore the museums along this busy street.

    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.

    Interesting museum detailing the variety of immigrants into Australia. The stories behind the photos were fascinating.

    Used the free trams on a number of occasions as well as the free bus getting back to the city from the zoo. Used the See-me app and it worked well for the bus. Need to understand the bus stop codes as they are confusing.

    Similar in style and shop content to Strand Arcade in Sydney and the Arcade in central Melbourne. Not as elaborate as Melbourne but still worth a walk through.
    It has a great selection of odd shops such a comic collection, hat makers, Gallery, coffee shops with light meals in a/c comfort.

    A very impressive collection of art works of international standard, lead by an extremely knowledgeable guide. The entry price was very reasonable. It should be better known by locals and a must for art loving visitors.

    Very clean and well spaced, lots of interesting shops and eateries - many sports wear shops, discounted prices so many bargains.
    All shop staff friendly and accommodating, spent a lovely afternoon meandering round here.

    Pre show dinner (Mary Poppins) at The Star Kitchen and Bar - beautiful location and views across to Adelaide Oval.
    The porterhouse steak cooked to perfection - the added flavours made this without any doubt the best steak I have ever eaten. Superb!!
    My wife’s Linguini puttanesca was also enjoyed - but looking more like spaghetti was used.
    A request for another two bread rolls and a spoon for the wife was met with “very busy at the moment …” (restaurant approx. 60% full). Staff member never returned to our table. Slight hitch in what was otherwise a great evening!
