Great for shoppers and window-shoppers but also for visitors who just want to stroll, observe and experience the atmosphere of the place. Lots to do, restaurants, cafes, shops.

Generally an area that is overlooked in favour of Hutt St or North Adelaide restaraunt precincts. If you are visiting and have the time it would probably pay to at least wander around and see what is on offer - you shouldn't be disappointed.
