Adelaide Central Market
The pureSA bus will be awaiting your arrival outside the ships terminal. First stop is the Adelaide Central Market* in the heart of the city. This historic market has been a mecca of food in Adelaide for over 150 years and still today retains its unique charm and character. Renown for its multicultural flavors and local produce it has become one of Adelaide’s must do attractions. A walk around the market is a great way to immerse yourself in the local culture whilst indulging your senses with some of the finest produce available in South Australia.
Next up is a leisurely drive along Adelaide’s bustling streets, precincts and surrounding park lands. Crossing the River Torrens, we drive along the beautifully redeveloped Riverbank Precinct, past the world famous Adelaide Oval and then travel out of the city on Adelaide’s cultural boulevard ‘North Terrace’. Here you will witness many of Adelaide’s most important landmarks and historic buildings. All you have to do is sit back and take it all in while your friendly guide narrates the city’s connection to the past, present and future.
Cleland Wildlife Park
Drive through the scenic Adelaide Hills to the highest point of Mount Lofty Summit. At the summit take in the fantastic panoramic views over the Adelaide Plains and Gulf St. Vincent and make sure to snap a picture or two. Our major stop for the day is Cleland Wildlife Park where you will have plenty of time to get close to Australia’s most unique wildlife. Whilst immersing yourself in the wonders of this natural bush environment, you can engage with impressive kangaroos, shy wallabies and inquisitive potoroos. The Koala close-up experience is a definite must do, along with seeing the Emu’s, Dingoes, Wombats, and native bird life. Cleland Wildlife Park is nestled within the beautiful Cleland Conservation Park and is also your stop for lunch.
