Being an Adelaidian some may say that my view is biased. This is one of the most attractive streets-capes to be seen anywhere. A stroll to the east starting at the railway station (also housing the casino) takes you past parliament house and the governor's residence. Then past the war memorial the library, the museum and art gallery (all free... More

Plenty to see along North Tce. The architecture of the buildings is really amazing and add the busts of people relevant to SA history, makes it worth a stroll. The Museum , Art Gallery is also on this street and both are worth a look, especially the Museum as it is free I was impressed with the National War Memorial,... More

Walking along North Terrace you are met with history and the future! So many lovely old buildings, combined with monuments to war heroes, places to sit and rest and newer buildings such as the Festival Centre (just around the corner) and the flash Intercontinental Hotel!

A whole stretch of free museums and galleries to visit on the north side of this street (east of King William), with the mall stretch on the south side. Tree-lined down this end, with sculptures and water features - very pretty. Train station situated here, and plenty of buses come down this way, making it very easily accessible.

North Terrace is very long so if you are arriving in Adelaide on public transport from the airport it would be a good idea to know which end you need because we caught a bus that only stopped near the hospital and had a very long walk with luggage to our hotel. North Terrace is very diverse in what it... More

From the intersection with East Terrace, a stroll along North Terrace takes you past the brilliant SA Botanic Gardens, the National Trust's Ayers House, SA and Adelaide Universities with their magnificent Gothic Revival buildings, the SA Art Gallery and SA Museum, the SA State Library,the Migration...

This is where the historic buildings such as the Parliament, Governor's House, State Library, South Australian Museum, Art Gallery are located. Adelaide Casino is also along this street housed in heritage building underneath of which is the railway station. Hence, perhaps it is appropriate to be where the tramp stops and starts its journey...and just the next street to Adelaide's... More

We stayed at Oaks Embassy on North Tce so we were very close to all the attractions along the terrace. This is a pleasant stroll with many interesting buildings,Restaurants, Cafes and Bars along the way. You could make this an all day (stop and) stroll.
