After taking the main commercial route to the city, you will travel along the tree-lined North Terrace. Look for the Casino located within the handsomely restored former railway building, see numerous stately colonial buildings, glimpse the Botanical Gardens and admire Holy Trinity Church.

Enjoy pleasant views of the city’s renowned flower-fringed parks before continuing past the grand Old Parliament buildings and nearby Government House. You will then leave the urban limits and venture to Mt Lofty Lookout for spectacular views of the city.

Soon after, take an interesting look at some of Australia’s unique fauna and flora at the Cleland Wildlife Park. See cuddly koalas and enjoy a chance to hand-feed the kangaroos. Wombats, dingoes, emus and colorful birds also abound in this natural bush setting. The park also is home to a variety of rare and endangered species such as the yellow-footed rock wallaby, the southern stone curlew and the brush-tailed bettong. Your delightful encounter with the creatures of Australia drawing to a close, return to the pier in Adelaide.

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.
