  • 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
