Be an Adelaide Local: Intimate Walk

This small-group walk allows those with a curious nature to step into the shoes of a local, exploring intimate locations around Adelaide's city centre frequently visited by locals, but not always noticed.

Be inspired by quirky stories, varied architecture and new perspectives as you wander through the North Terrace and Riverbank precincts before discovering hidden architectural gems and a garden oasis.

This is an Adelaide walking tour with a difference. You'll gain far more than just facts about monuments, you'll leave with a local understanding of how Adelaide became the city it is today and learn how it's continuing to evolve today.

The walk is designed for a maximum of four people, creating an intimate group environment focused on an in-depth insight of Adelaide.

And, if you're keen to continue exploring Adelaide further once the tour is over, you'll leave with a recommendation list of Adelaide's best spots.
