Queen Adelaide Club

Adelaide Club and Queen Adelaide Club

Walk too fast and you might miss the home of Adelaide’s ‘establishment’ on North Terrace.

Discreetly fronting Adelaide’s cultural boulevard, the Adelaide Club was built in 1864 and remains one of the few exclusive bastions in an otherwise progressive and relatively egalitarian city.

Its membership has included parliamentarians, leading businessmen, merchants and pastoralists.

Just down the road, on the corner of Stephens Place, is its companion club for ‘establishment’ women, the Queen Adelaide Club.

Initially used as residences and doctors’ consulting rooms, the associated buildings date back to the late 1800s and early 1900s.

The South Australian National War Memorial and South Australian Sailors, Soldiers and Airmen Memorial is located on the corner of Kintore Avenue and North Terrace.
