Must see attractions on Adelaide's Cultural Precint Sep 24, 2008
Here are must see attractions found on North Terrace in Adelaide.
ART GALLERY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA
Has an extensive collection of Australian art. From modern pieces to pieces by famed aboriginal Australians. On a hot summer day this is a good place to cool off and wander about for a few hours. Find yourself a favorite painting, mine is by Matisse which portrayed a cow flying out a window. Their collection of modern aboriginal art pieces can't be beat! The cafe at the museum is an excellent place for a meal.
MUSEUM OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA
Must see attractions at this museum includes their extensive collection of aboriginal artifacts that explain life for native australians before the arrival of the europeans. They also have an extensive collection of artifacts from New Guinea and pacific islands. Be prepared to be confronted by decorative human skulls from New Guinea. Free Admission!
STATE LIBRARY OF SOUTH AUSTRALIA
A good place to check email for free. Sign up at the desk. Also a good place to catch up on newspapers from around the world.
NATIONAL WINE CENTRE OF AUSTRALIA
Run by the University of Adelaide, the striking modern edifice is located next to the botanic garden. Learn about wine and wine making
ADELAIDE BOTANIC GARDEN
A historic botanic garden. Beautiful landscaping. Check out the lotus pond, the Victorian Palm House and the Bicentennial Conservatory Conservatory for tropical plants. Spend several hours here.
THE RIVER TORRENS
From the University of Adelaide campus, walk north towards the pedestrian only metal bridge. Meandor westward, following the Torrens and check out boathouses and assorted birds (pelicans, ducks). This is a good place to picnic under the shade while watching the world go by. Also check out the well tended roses and assorted other flora.
Top off your day on Rundle Street towards East Terrace. Make your way to COCOLAT for coffee, hot chocolate, gelato... and awesome chocolate deserts. Not ready for desert... there are many places to dine on this stretch of Rundle St. But you must stop at Cocolat.
