Walk on the Port side

Discover Port Adelaide’s fascinating stories and relaxed pub vibe on this walking tour. Known by early settlers as Port Misery, you’ll hear the stories that shaped this vital heritage place and understand how it functions today. See how beautiful architecture, intriguing tales and modern street art all give the Port its unique appeal, including a visit to a local business to see how new and old elements of the area seamlessly intertwine. 

You’ll also appreciate port life as the locals did – and still do – by visiting a pub for a refreshment included in your ticket price. Participants under 18 will receive a non-alcoholic drink, while adults have a choice of an alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage. Choose from coffee or tea, to a house wine or schooner of house beer.
