Adelaide’s most popular mall is more than just a space for shopping, it’s an iconic attraction. Walking through the mall you experience the classic architecture of Adelaide combined with contemporary artistic charm. One of the centrepieces of the mall is the two large, mirrored balls that reflect the scenery of the mall—perfect for tourist shots and mirror selfies. Rundle Mall is Australia’s first pedestrianised mall, opening the middle of the mall up to pedestrians so you can walk at your leisure. Take in the history and enjoy some local shopping in Adelaide.
