Thought we'd pop in to have a look . Ayers house gives you a good insight into what it was like back in the day . It would be a great place for a wedding or big function very nicely presented.

Lovely old building that you're allowed to wander through on your own. You can go down in the cellars as well as up to the bedrooms on the first floor. Gives you a great sense of the period. Good value at $10. A must see!

This place has an excellent historical record of the early days of Adelaide and the families who figured prominently in its founding days. The place is much larger than first appears and teh displays have something for everyone.

Ayers House sounded interesting from the guidebooks so we went along to take a look. We were offered our own personal guided tour - no waiting for any others to show up. Our guide then walked us round the house for the next thirty minutes,...More
