“Most Liveable City”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Rundle Mall is one of the reasons Adelaide has been ranked as one of the ten most liveable cities in the world. It is a pedestrian-only street which is Adelaide's main shopping street. In addition to the shops, it has many cafes and various sculptures such as the trash-can pigs, the mall balls, and a nice fountain.

Once you get to the end of the mall, you can go left on Pulteney Street, which takes you to North Terrace where you can find many buildings dating back to the 1800s or early 1900s. These include an old church, the university, art gallery, museum, state library, war memorial, parliament house, and the main railway station.

Or you can continue on Rundle Street which has many good restaurants, many of which are in converted old warehouses from the 1800s. There are some pubs that date back to that era also.

What helps make Adelaide a most liveable city is that the main business, shopping, restaurant, entertainment, and government centers are all within walking distance of each other and Rundle Mall is part of this.

“A great selection of shops”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Lots of shops to choose from including some obscure shops but it was very hard to find the bathrooms!

“Nothing Special”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

While the Mall is well presented and clean, it is the main retail area of the city and the shop selection is very ordinary. In fairness here, Adelaide does not have the big name retail stores of the larger eastern city capitals.

“The Not Surprising - Rundle Mall”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

We don't mind going to Rundle Mall every now and then but compared to locations in other states or countries, there is nothing about this Mall that suggests it's a "must see" location!
