About Yella Umbrella Walking Tours
No convicts here! Take a step beyond sightseeing and discover the intriguing history behind this unique colony. Join professional guide Bob Brady for a comprehensive insight into the founding of this planned, utopian society. Along the way you will be introduced to the cultural precinct with its galleries and museums; take coffee in the majestic Adelaide Arcade; and mix with the locals at Adelaide’s famous Central Market. A great way to start your visit to this beautiful city. The tour is offered every day except Sundays and public holidays. Pre-booking is essential. The tour leaves the historic Strathmore Hotel on North Terrace at 10am and concludes at Adelaide’s famous Central Market at 12.30pm. The tour cost includes a refreshment break. Small groups are the norm. In fact the tour has no minimum so if you want to avoid the crowd, this is the tour for you.
