Adelaide Arcade

Running off Rundle Mall, down to Grenfell Street, the heritage-listed Adelaide Arcade and the Regent Arcade offer boutique shopping, aboriginal crafts, and even locally-mined opals.


For the best Adelaide shopping experience, there are two main areas you should visit. The first is around Rundle Mall--the heart of retail, dining, and entertainment in the city. The second area is to the southwest of the central grid of streets, between Grote and Gouger Streets, where you will find the Adelaide Central Market, known as the food pantry of Adelaide. Here you will discover the incredible abundance of raw ingredients Australia produces. This area is also a showcase of the melting pot of cultures that make up Adelaide today, with the sights and smells of Italian, Vietnamese, Lebanese, Greek, Chinese, and Japanese cuisines to feast upon--just to name a few.
