Rundle Mall Tours
Read MoreShow Less
Some 400,000 customers flock to this shopping Mecca every week—including 85% of Adelaide’s international travelers. With 700 retailers it’s no surprise. Make a stop at the Adelaide Visitors Information Center, where friendly staff and a library of brochures offer up advice on what to do, where to go and what not to miss in the area. Next walk through Adelaide and Gays Arcade, where beautiful skylights line the ceiling. Retailers here were the first in the country to have electric lights, and locals believe six ghosts live in the arcade, including a caretaker who fell to his death repairing the generator that powered the lights.
Browse the shelves at one of the mall’s dozens of books stores before heading to Haighs for a famous chocolate frog. The fourth generation family owned business is an Australian staple, and has been whipping up its famous cocoa treats since 1915.
Enjoy local shopping at Raw Space and It’s a Gift (two of the mall’s most-visited stores) before heading taking some final photo ops with the Silver Balls (also known as the Malls Balls) and the bronze pigs. These two quirky works of public art have become Rundle Mall institutions.
General trading hours are Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. The mall extends shopping on Fridays until 9 p.m., but closes Saturday and Sunday at 5 p.m. Rundle Mall is accessible by car, the 99C City Loop Bus or the free Terrace to Terrace tram. Trains from Belair, Gawler, Outer Harbor/Grance and Noarlunga/Tonsley also stop at the Adelaide Railway Station, a short walk from Rundle Mall.
Address: 2/7 James Pl, Adelaide, SA 5000, Australia
