In order to go to Angus Street, my taxi went through North Terrace. As I hadn't been there for a very long time since the bus route had changed, it was really nice to see the familiar buildings like the railway station, parlament house, museum, etc.

If you are a tourist visiting Adelaide, you will probably be spending a lot of your time on North Terrace. From Ayers House on one end to the Railway Station/Casino on the other, this is where many tourist attractions are located. Even if your time is limited, take a stroll along North Terrace and admire the beautiful architecture.

North Terrace is one of the great CBD boulevards in Australia - a broad esplanade lined with gardens, sculptures and historic buildings, including the Art Gallery, Museum, War Memorial, University and Parliament House, from which many streets radiate into the heart of the City. A delightful place for a stroll and to soak up the atmosphere of one of Australia's most pleasant cities.

North Terrace contains a mile of Adelaide's impressive monuments. North Terrace was planned to take in Adelaide's most splendid institutions -- Parliament House, the old Railway Station, the Museum, the Art Gallery and the Casino and the University of South Australia, amongst other things. It's an easy walk, and there are information panels describing the people and institutions, including a number of South Australian Nobel Prize Laureates.

There's so much to do and see in Adelaide, and there's no better place to start than at the top. From the hospital on the north-west corner you can walk, tram or e-scooter your way eastwards past the university buildings, hotels, restaurants, magnificent railway station & casino, museum/galleries and other historic buildings.

Walking down North Terrace is a fascinating and enjoyable experience. You go past the casino, the old railway station and Parliament house. Can you cross the road and you walk past government house, the art gallery, the museum, University of Adelaide and the University of South Australia. All along the way there are information boards telling you some of the history but also there are plaques in the sidewalk telling you about the famous South Australians and what their contribution was. This includes Nobel prize winners. It is certainly worth an hour or 2 to just gently stroll North Terrace
