A popular walking trail from Waterfall Gully to Mt Lofty (and visa versa) with a cafe at each end, a well made path and regular seating. If you enjoy a good walk/hike, there are plenty of trails in Adelaide - whether easy, short, long, or difficult, there are plenty to choose from. Many can be accessed via public transport. And keep the camera handy! There's a great website listing walking trails that may be of interest. https://www.alltrails.com/australia/south-australia/walking

Rymill Park hosts many festivals, and is a lovely area to stroll around - right on the edge of the CBD itself. The area by the lake is a very lovely spot to relax.

The extension of Rundle Mall (shopping precinct) is Rundle St, with lovely al fresco dining and food outlets and restaurants.

Conseils sur la ville

Se déplacer dans les environs
We recommend the tram.
Tram is 5 mins walk away on Glengyle Ave. Trams come every 15 mins. Regular and reliable. New trams make them very comfortable. We keep Metrocards in the guest folder at home that can be topped up on the tram. Or single tickets can be purchased at the machine on the tram (payment by cash, credit card). Only one tram line - to Glenelg (beach) and to city and onward to Entertainment Centre, so can't get lost!! Bus is also easy to access with the bus stop next to the Centro (Kmart) shops on Anzac Highway.
