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.

Are you ready to take the tour?

Make the most of Rundle Mall's 700 retailers and 300 services and enjoy the best of Adelaide's shopping, dining and entertainment until 9pm every Friday night.
