Adelaide - Information

The obvious first stop for information is the South Australian Travel Centre , at 18 King William St, between Rundle Mall and North Terrace (Mon-Fri 8.30am-5.30pm, Sat & Sun 9am-2pm; tel 1300/655 276, ). Staff are very helpful at this large modern office, where masses of general information is displayed, including excellent, free touring guides and maps of Adelaide and the state. However, tour and accommodation bookings are only dealt with via the website or over the telephone on the 1300 number above, which you can call for free from the centre. There's also free access to the statewide tourist information website on a terminal in the centre, as well as a freephone to the Passenger Transport InfoLine - you'll need to queue for more specific enquiries. If you arrive by bus, head straight for the Backpacker Transit and Travel Centre , a bright pink building opposite the station at 110 Franklin St (daily 8.30am-6pm; tel 08/8410 3000). They can provide free maps, book all domestic tours and rent bikes; there's also a currency exchange, telephone, a good notice board, and internet access ($2 for 30min).


The government-run Information SA , 77 Grenfell St (Mon, Tues, Thurs & Fri 9am-5pm, Wed 9.30am-5pm; tel 08/8204 1900, ), sells the Department of Sport and Recreation's maps of the Heysen Trail, Mount Lofty walks and South Australian cycle routes (these can also be purchased online); there are also some free maps and brochures, and free internet access for half an hour. On the ground floor of the same building, the Environment Shop and Information Centre (same hours; tel 08/8204 1910) has lots of information on national and conservation parks in and around Adelaide and the state. The City of Adelaide Customer Centre , a block south on 25 Pirie St (Mon-Fri 8.30am-5.30pm; tel 08/8203 7203, ), has a range of free maps and booklets, including the glossy fold-out Art in Public Places Walking Guide , which contains information on art throughout South Australia, and the bimonthly glossy booklet Adelaide City Scene , which details all upcoming events and travelling exhibitions in the city. Some of these are also available at the South Australian Travel Centre and the South Australian Museum.
