  • We walked along the North Terrace which was over 1km and saw many historical sights along this road like Ayer House, Railway station, Convention centre, War memorial, museum etc  more »
  • I think that I went back and forth several times from the city west of the tram to the destination of the University of Adelaide. I used it when I went to Adelaide Botanic Gardens and went to museums, museums, or libraries on the street.
