Will probably never see this statue unless shopping or on walking tour, worth a minute then but not otherwise.

I loved this modern sculpture in Rundle Street. It was particularly effective at night with the reflection of the street lights.

The mirrored balls in Rundle Mall positively invite people to take unusual photos - we did. Also for those who are not shopaholics it provides a distraction along with pigs to make the shopping more bearable! A must for those visiting Adelaide and an internationally...More

Great landmark to meet up with family after shopping in the city. Have used the balls as a meeting point for over 30 years. Good on Adelaide City for keeping them.

These spheres are so cool, & a real landmark in the Rundle Mall. Many use it to meet up with friends but others were enjoying taking unusual selfies. A great focal point in the city

These balls are centrally located just outside Rundle Mall & are clearly visible from some distance so can act as a great meeting point as well as being a great photographic opportunity for visitors to the city, we really liked them.
