If you're into balls...

Then this is a pair alright. Right in the middle of the mall. For a big night out in Adelaide, go out for dinner then on the way home swing by and check them out.

Adelaide is a small unique city so something as insignificant as 2 shiny balls mean little to our visitors however for Adelaidians they are iconic and usually have special memories of childhood and catching up with friends. We treasure the little things. I have a photo in front of them from long before I became a local.

I found them Nice and it reminded me a bit about something similar (but in much bigger scale!) I have seen in Chicago. But it is the Perfect Meeting Place and especially fun for smaller children to look at.

If you're visiting Adelaide, don't miss Rundle Mall. See the balls and keep walking west for the pig in the bins and friends!

We were told by a local on the plane trip over, "you must go the mall and see the giant balls" - Simply because they are there, so we did and that was that -2 giant balls in the centre of the mall- no more than that .

You can just your travelling partner to meet at Rundle Mall’s Balls, and this one be the place. 2 large reflective spheres right on the arcade is a landmark within the mall. Modern art like this is pretty popular and this particular one has been around for decades.

The title comes from the fact that tapping with your knuckles on the outside of this thing causes a somewhat haunting metallic ring that will make you (and any kids nearby) smile.
