An Adelaide icon and this interesting and unusual landmark has at Rundle Mall level one of Adelaide's other icons, Haigh's Chocolates. Incorporate a look at this building with a shopping trip. Do not drive a great distance just to see this alone, but when you are there pause for a moment from the end of Hindley Street. Look up at... More

Distinctive building with interesting architecture which has been well preserved. Worth taking the time to have a good look at from various angles.

It is a very distinctive building, amongst many high rises. Situated at the end of Rundle Mall, there is a Haigh's Chocolate store on the ground floor. Along with other reviews, it does stand out and is very well preserved, but, still is just a building.

We walk past it on every trip to Adelaide and you cant help but notice it and comment. Adelaide has so many beautiful older buildings but most of them you comment because of the stone unique to Adelaide. Here it is more the architecture with the stonework and gargoyle.

Walking along Rundle Mall, the Beehive Building is a feature that you cannot walk past without looking upwards. The building exhibits many features of Victorian architecture but the Turret with the Beehive on top and the Golden Bee at the summit is a joy to behold. The building may not be as famous as The Golden Gate Bridge in San... More

This building is so nice and it's in such a central location. It's fascinating - the architecture is beautiful, lovely stonework and the gargoyle is a bumble bee ... it's certainly unique and an easy landmark to get your bearings when you're still unfamiliar with the city streets. Very nice to see.

Beehive corner stands like a beacon at the intersection of Rundle, King William and Hindley Streets. It is a permanent reminder that Adelaide has class, style and of course history. If you were in any doubt then pop into Haighs Chocolate Shop for a sample of Australias (and possibly the worlds) best chocolate. Beehive Corner Building is what Adelaide is... More

When you walk past it, you cant hlp but stop and look at it. It comes from an era when architecture was so much more than big tall glass buildings. Adelaide has a variety of interesting old buildings and this is just one of them.

Those of you visiting from out of town or not from around here should know that within this location lies Australia's best chocolatier, Haigh's. They sell a very diverse range of chocolate products and chocolate gift ideas and have the nicest staff within the CBD. The building is on the North West corner of Rundle Mall and King William St...

This building is located on the corner of Rundle Mall- Adelaide's main CBD shopping center. It's an interesting example of Gothic architecture- built in 1895. For locals, it's a popular place to meet- being a prominent landmark. Atop the corner of the building, there's a turret which is decorated with a beehive and bee. The building houses several shops- on... More
