Rundle Mall, Adelaide Reviews
I haven't been to the city since I lived close 30 years ago. I loved wandering through Rundle mall and all the arcades that took me back. So many improvements in the Mall. Loved the pigs and visiting some of my favorite stores and enjoyed lunch at one of the pop up food venues the where donating to various charities. What a great idea!
Very friendly, and cool place to visit. Regular buskers who change over every couple of hours mostly excellent but one or two a little dodgy. Plenty of high quality shops and great dining too. Plenty of bars that have great beers and atmosphere. Fantastic rail links to surrounding towns and villages give a great service with clean carriages and are very reliable and timely. A particularly during the fringe festival
I arrived in a Sunday night and the place was dead! Surprising as it was the last night of the Adelaide festival. SA has just elected a new government who are committed to deregulation of retail trading hours. Maybe this will bring some more life to the place on a weekend. On the Monday night things were a bit more lively.
One of the many hearts of Adelaide, complete with many stores, food courts, street acts and artwork. It sees a large flow of people but you can always walk through with ease. It's close to the nearby universities and many places of business making it an idea meeting place for everyone.
Has changed a lot over the years. Still plenty of buskers to keep you distracted as you walk around. There are now street vendors selling food/coffee right in the open. It all feels very hipster though and not my cup of tea. Plenty of shops to get what you need and the place is generally pretty clean and easy to navigate.
