Australia's best market
The Adelaide Central Market is our most visited tourist attraction. It has more than 80 stalls, cafés and restaurants. It’s unchallenged as Australia’s best market. You won’t find this variety of food under one roof anywhere else.
Many market businesses are family owned. Forget breakfast and feast on the free samples as you browse for a bargain. Customers really do come first. There are plenty of cafés surrounding the market, so you might want breakfast after all!
Home to iconic exhibitions and collections
Just wait until you see some of our galleries and museums. Stroll along tree-lined North Terrace and you’ll see what we mean.
Make the Art Gallery of South Australia your first stop. With 38,000 pieces in its collection, from Australia, Europe, North America and Asia, there's sure to be a painting, sculpture, print, drawing, photo or piece of furniture that catches your eye.
When too much is not enough
Adelaide is full of unique holiday experiences and that includes shopping.
Rundle Mall has more than 700 retail stores, three major department stores and 15 arcades and centres. Paved and pedestrian friendly, there are also outdoor cafes and bars to rest your tired but happy shopping feet. Relax on a bench and watch the world of shoppers pass by.
