Famous Streets & Shops

If you are wondering where everyone in Adelaide is, you'll find them at Rundle Mall, the city's main shopping area. Shops in the City Centre are generally open Monday-Thursday 9-5:30, Friday 9-9, Saturday 9-5:30, and Sunday 11-5. Suburban shops are often open until 9 pm on Thursday night instead of Friday. As the centre of the world's opal industry, Adelaide has many opal shops, which are around King William Street. Other good buys are South Australian regional wines, crafts, and Aboriginal artwork. The trendiest area to browse is King William Road in Hyde Park, a five-minute drive south of Adelaide's CBD. Outside of the city, the Parade at Norwood and the Burnside Shopping Centre are packed with current trends, and Harbour Town next to Adelaide Airport is a great place to find a bargain.
