Rundle Mall - Review

Located in the city centre, the Rundle Mall is the prime shopping area of Adelaide. Opened in 1976 it was Australia’s first pedestrian only street mall. The streets a shoppers paradise. It is home to the flagship stores of Australia’s leading retail brands and has a number of arcades and plazas with shops and boutique selling everything from high-end fashion to electronics. Open seven days a week, the mall is a must visit place even if one just wants to window shop. There are several buskers and street performers entertaining shoppers in the street. Interesting things to see apart from all the merchandise are several modern sculptures located in the mall. The Spheres (colloquially known as Mall’s Balls) a metallic sculpture of two giant spheres is a must see and also a popular meeting place for shoppers. Also worth seeing are a group of life-size bronze pigs - Horatio, Truffles, Augusta and Olive. Other points of interest are the Beehive Corner, The Fountain, The Rundle Lantern and a giant statue of a cockroach.

Rundle Mall, Adelaide Reviews

  • The outdoor mall with a diverse culture. You've got buskers performing and food vendors selling. It's what Adelaide is good for when it comes to shopping experience. Any tourist or local should appreciate it. You get to see the pigs of Rundle Mall and the iconic Malls Balls. Never miss the light effects across Rundle Street if you're going home late it's the best view the cap off the day.

  • I always love walking down the mall with my family. Listening to performances from local artists and general bizarre beauty that desire our attention. Always vegan food available at either end so you'll never go hungry.

  • Rundle Mall is no different to any other large city mall. Depending on what you are after you may find all that you need within a close area. This is a good location for the whole family to go and be entertained by buskers and food vans along with the services and stalls that can be found in most malls.

  • A shopping street with a large selection of shops and cafes. A number of well recognised brands available. There is also some interesting art located on the street. This area has locals and visitors and a good location to visit. There is also a number of shopping centres that can be accessed from here

  • A beautiful part of our city with history and modern combined, a huge variety of shops and food places, banks, foreign money exchange, beautiful Arcades with a creepy and not so creepy history and some ghosts (see Adelaide Arcade). The Regency Arcade has been the most beautiful cinema theatre in the southern hemisphere. Visitors of our town like the 'landmarks': the pigs, the balls, the cockroach etc. Come and visit the heart of Adelaide and book a guided tour where you hear everything about the historic side of the Mall and her Arcades ... and with luck you meet one of the good tempered ghosts.
