It's worth looking up

It's probably not worth going out of your way for but if you're in the area, take a look up at this piece of architecture.

The beehinve building is a beautiful old building. well worth a visit at the start of the Rundle Mall shopping strip. It has a chocolate shop selling tasty chocolate and is well worth visiting when in Adelaide.

This is a popular landmark and meeting place for people, in the past more so perhaps than today, when there are many more popular places in town.

This building is a real cutie and well worth a second look. It has been the Haigh's flagship store since 1922. The bee at the peak of the building is a real delight.

This is a busy area with Haighs Chocolates store on the corner. A must visit to taste the chocolates and purchase for family and friends. It is a lovely building and can be appreciated from across the road. There are plenty of shops to browse and to pick up souveniers.
