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 South Australian-sized schooner of house beer.

This is an Adelaide walking tour removed from the bustle of the city – a unique Adelaide experience with a small group maximum of 10 people (average four). If you’d like to make it a private tour, we offer that at an extra cost.

We’ll make sure you’re fully prepared for your visit to the Port ahead of time too, by sending you a link to our recommendations list in your confirmation email. This is so you can make the most out of Port Adelaide!
