The fabulous retail and dining options on offer at SA’s outdoor shopping destinations are popular all year round thanks to SA’s temperate weather.
This Adelaide’s premier shopping destination is situated in the heart of the CBD. With the biggest and best range of brands, Rundle Mall boasts 700 retail outlets, 300 services and 3 department stores. Home to award-winning artworks like the ‘Malls Balls’ by Bert Flugelman, Rundle Mall is a cultural landmark and meeting place within Adelaide. A powerful sense of atmosphere and community is created through the hosting of major events, activations, pop-ups, and a diverse range of world-class buskers all encapsulated within the mall.
Continue walking down Rundle Mall and you’ll come to Rundle Street in Adelaide’s East End. Rundle Street is filled with boutique stores, big and small, such as Zimmermann and Gorman, as well as foodie icons like The Stage Public House, Eros Kafe and The Exeter Hotel.
Keep an eye on their website for events, activations, and pop ups that you won’t want to miss. It truly lights up in March with Fringe Festival celebrations. The Palace Nova Cinemas – also in Rundle Street, is often host to wonderful film festivals.
If you love shopping in the outdoors, head to Jetty Road, Glenelg where the stores are inviting, and the seaside atmosphere is strong. You’ll find 300 specialty shops along the kilometre-long shopping strip, from stylish boutiques through to homewares and gift shops, as well as one of the state’s most popular beaches all in the one place!
Known as Adelaide’s premier destination for boutique and high street shopping, King William Road in Hyde Park has a local village atmosphere. It’s the ideal spot to find a new outfit for upcoming events at stores such as Wild Child, Denim Iniquity and Denim & Cloth, or to a unique gift for the ones you love (we’re fans of Flourish Gift and Home or Paloma and Co).
At the end of the day, stop at one of the many restaurants to enjoy an impeccable meal from the likes of ShoSho or Nido Pasta Bar.
