Sightseeing in Adelaide (with kids), part 2


1. Adelaide Zoo - located in the centre of city, on the edge of the university campus has around 1400 exotic and native mammals, birds and reptiles. The highlight of the zoo is a newly-acquired couple of pandas. They have definitely become the zoo's mascots.

2. Botanic Gardens -  is a 125-acre (51 ha) public green space established in 1854. It is easy to forget about the hassle of city in this quiet setting of native and exotic plants, pavilions, and exhibits.


National Wine Centre of Australia built in 2000 as a joint State and Federal Government venture, the building is being leased to the University of Adelaide for 40 years. Here you can enjoy wine and winemaking from the ground up.  The interactive Wine Discovery self-guided tour and exhibition showcase the complete wine experience. The cafe offers a wine tasting menu with options to appease a connoisseur. The attractive and unusual building is also a home for many events functions, as well as wine appreciation classes, wine training, and weekly 'wine-down hours'.

Rundle Mall is probably, it is one of the most-recognized streets in Adelaide, it is a 500m pedestrian area that concentrates more than 500 retails stores, boutiques, and arcades. A walk down the street is a treat for kids - with ice-cream or smoothie in hand, they enjoy the bronze sculptured pigs, the fountain, the Mall Balls, and the performers.
