Adelaide Arcade History Tour

When Adelaide Arcade was first opened in 1885, it was hailed as the most modern shopping precinct in the Southern Hemisphere.

Despite modifications, renovations and even a fire, Adelaide Arcade and adjoining Gay's Arcade remain true to their original ambience and style to this day and are rich with history and stories of yesteryear — including ones of multiple ghosts who call the Arcades home.

The best part is that you can enjoy this self-guided history tour either in the Arcade, or from the comfort of your own home with their interactive website and audio experience.
