The exterior of the building housing the 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.

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.

The first street statue erected in the city on North Terrace is actually a copy of a famous neoclassical work. Based on Italian sculptor Antonio Canova’s ‘Venus’, it was chiselled from Carrara marble by Fraser & Draysey, and presented by Mr W A Horn to Mayor F W Bullock on 3 September 1892.
