Perhaps I’ve come at the wrong timing — weekday afternoon and the temperature on the street was climbing to a scorching 41°C. There was hardly anyone on the street. The buildings were quaint and we had a walk along the dock.

After the lunch at the Pancake Shop, we went for a stroll. It was sunny and pleasant. But we had to be careful that my friend’s 5-year-old grandson wouldn’t go too close to the edge of the docks.

It’s always nice to stroll along the Docks. It was quiet, when I visited. So I enjoyed a peaceful atmosphere in a warm autumn sun.

The riverside walk is clean & wide & great to walk along. Do cross by the bridge & go along to the old mill: the other half of the port often gets missed. The City of Adelaide restoration project is well worth a visit. There...More

Lovely walk through the Port with a few boats in the harbour. The One and All is worth having a look over and the Steve Erwin was also in port.
