Overview

No convicts here! Take a step beyond sightseeing and discover the intriguing history behind this unique colony. Join professional guide Bob Brady for a comprehensive insight into the founding of this planned, utopian society. Along the way you will be introduced to the cultural precinct with its galleries and museums; take coffee in the majestic Adelaide Arcade; and mix with the locals at Adelaide’s famous Central Market. A great way to start your visit to this beautiful city. The tour is offered every day except Sundays and public holidays. Pre-booking is essential. The tour leaves the historic Strathmore Hotel on North Terrace at 10am and concludes at Adelaide’s famous Central Market at 12.30pm. The tour cost includes a refreshment break. Small groups are the norm. In fact the tour has no minimum so if you want to avoid the crowd, this is the tour for you.

Thank you for your comments. It is important to acknowledge that the Aboriginal peoples had custodianship of this land for thousands of years before the first Europeans arrived.
