The balls of Rundle Mall compete well with the famous Rundle Mall Pigs. They are a delightful landmark and photo opportunity!

These iconic balls are a must see in Rundle Mall. Whether you love them or hate them most people will want photo taken with them. Plus they're an excellent meeting spot - meet you by the Balls!

Iconic feature of Adelaide and Rundle Mall, cannot be disturbed or changed, like so many other parts of Adelaide. Love to see a wall museum of the change that Adelaide has gone through as part of the Rundle Mall
