  • I had to go to Port Adelaide on Tuesday around lunch time. So I decided to visit the Lighthouse and surrounding areas. It was very quiet and peaceful.  more »
  • It may br hard for inconvenience / handicapped person to go up. If you can, spend 1 dollar and consume your next 20 mins to take good photos upstairs.  more »

  • Port Adelaide is -hopefully also in the future- a place with lots of SA important history, buildings, landmarks, Aboriginal history, we recognise their land we live and work on, culture, history and peoples past and present. When visiting our city book a tour through the Aboriginal history, hear the stories of the land around and opposite the Lighthouse. ....and generally go on a walk trough the history, a dolphin cruise, visit Lipson St with its three museums
  • A great backdrop for photos
