Thanks to the foresight of Adelaide’s founders, the city is beautifully planned, marked by a strict grid pattern surrounded by parkland. At the center of the grid is Victoria Square and each city quarter has its own smaller square with its own unique character.

Continue to downtown Adelaide for a close-up look at the city’s design and highlights. During your comfortable drive, you will pass the Casino located within the handsomely restored former Railway Building, see numerous stately colonial buildings, glimpse the Botanical Gardens and admire Holy Trinity Church.

Also, enjoy views of the city’s renowned flower-fringed parks before proceeding past the grand Old Parliament buildings and nearby Government House, Adelaide’s oldest public building.

Your compelling overview of Adelaide concludes as your return journey takes you along the tree-lined, mile-long heritage streetscape of North Terrace and down one of the city’s bustling commercial routes. You will pass some of the expansive coastal beaches and drive through the small town of Port Adelaide before arriving back at the quayside.


It is recommended that guests wear flat, comfortable shoes. Prevailing weather conditions may affect views from Mt Lofty. The order of sights visited may vary.
