Other things to note - I walk in rain, hail or shine - but will cancel 24 hours prior if the temperature forecast is 44 degrees Celsius or higher. - Please note that I generally run this only on Tuesdays, but my 1.5hr Welcome to Adelaide tour which also covers city history and culture runs five days a week (bookable via Flamboyance Tours).

Cultural Caper Walking Tour
On this walk we will see the imposing Parliament House, the oldest continually used Government House in Australia, and iconic memorials dedicated both to war and some of our noted citizens and influencers. This cultural tour also takes in the State Library, the old Destitute Asylum, the old Police Barracks, the Art Gallery of SA and the University of Adelaide and encapsulates the very best that the city has to offer. We start at Parliament House, which took 50 years to build before moving onto our first War Memorial erected in 1904 and the adjacent imposing Government House. A walk along North Terrace takes us past Prince Henry Gardens peppered with memorials dedicated to noted South Australians as well as an important early explorer, Matthew Flinders. The striking heritage architecture in Adelaide is notable, making a great contrast with the more contemporary modern buildings. Some of the older heritage style buildings date right back to the 1860's and have been well preserved for our viewing. We then pass by the iconic main War Memorial dedicated initially to the Great War and then visit the beautiful State Library of South Australia with its 1880's historic Mortlock Wing. A little visited area in behind North Terrace is the old Destitute Asylum and the old Mounted Police Barracks, which provoke many stories relating to crime, degradation and the human struggle to survive. Other things to note Easy paced 90 minute to 2 hour walking tours with the experience of a local guide. Starting and finishing points within reach of transport and cafes, shops etc. Wear comfortable clothing appropriate for the weather conditions as well as good walking shoes. Hats for warm days as well as water.
