Temporary Tourist – Last Day

What do you do before someone heads home after a lovely holiday? We went for a meal at the Duke of Brunswick Hotel in the city, the staff are friendly and we can choose anything from the menu because it’s 100% GF! Having a train station only a few minutes walk from home meant we didn’t have to bother with car parking. For a capital city, Adelaide’s CBD is small and easy to get around. Colonel Light designed it on a grid pattern with a central square, each side is 1 mile long so it’s relatively simple to work out how far you have to walk from place to place.

The Adelaide Train Station is very close to the Festival Theatre.

Our first stop was Rundle Mall for some last minute souvenir purchases.

We went by tram from Rundle Mall to South Terrace.

The trams run down the centre of King William Street.

Beside the four terraces are parklands, it’s a very relaxing place to be.

The Duke of Brunswick is the next street over from South Terrace,

After our delicious meal we walked back to the Tram Stop but the tram was unable to continue along the track because of emergency services vehicles ahead so we decided to walk instead.

Victoria Square was alive with press, support crews and the few contestants who had reached the end of the 3020 kms World Solar Challenge car race from Darwin to Adelaide. The winning team was, “Agoria” from Belgium, they’ve been working towards a win for 16 years.

We enjoyed our walk back to the station and the relaxing ride to our house, I’m glad I’m not the one heading off on a 26 1/2 hour journey to reach home.
