Adelaide Central Business District

Adelaide’s inner sanctum is a treasure-trove of heritage buildings, cafés, bars, green spaces and seasonal festivals.

Laid out on an easy-peasy grid, Adelaide CBD is made up of wide boulevards bound by terraces and divided into a series of precincts. Heritage façades and slick new developments make up the varied streetscape, hemming in the energetic hum of the venues inside. Cafés, restaurants and bars are frequented by coiffed businesspeople, students chasing cheap eats and cultural denizens waiting on the next curtain call. Check out live music, theatre and art events in this inner-city zone, which explodes every summer with the latest round of festivals.
