Exploring North Terrace in Adelaide

Exploring North Terrace, Adelaide

If you’re visiting Adelaide for the first time or you’re planning on spending the day in the city with your family, you must explore Adelaide’s cultural boulevard, North Terrace. There is always something new to discover.

Arguably the most picturesque street in the City of Adelaide, take a walk through this historical area and explore the numerous buildings, take in the heritage architecture and enjoy the tree lined paths and gardens. Running all the way from East Terrace to West Terrace, North Terrace is home to some of our most well known galleries and museums, universities, shops, restaurants, hotels and much more. 

Beautiful both day and night, there is something for all ages to enjoy along North Terrace, such as:

  • The National Wine Centre of Australia
  • The Adelaide Botanic Garden
  • Ayers House
  • The University of Adelaide
  • The Art Gallery of South Australia
  • Migration Museum
  • South Australian Museum
  • The State Library
  • ANZAC Centenary Memorial Walk
  • War Memorial
  • Rundle Mall
  • Government House
  • Parliament House
