Uncover Adelaide's early history along our boulevard of dreams

$15 per student
1 Hour

Take a step back in time

North Terrace remains Adelaide’s best opportunity to share stories of the city’s early history unique to our main boulevard as students see Parliament House, the Cultural Precinct (State Library, SA Museum, Art Gallery), Bonython Hall and Ayers House.

This is a fun way for students to interact with Adelaide – getting an introduction to why North Terrace is special within the Adelaide cityscape, how it contributed to the city’s growth and how it is evolving today. This is a short and snappy 1-hour walk to provide a sense of North Terrace’s cultural importance to Adelaide.

Students are encouraged to engage through taking photos, asking and answering questions, and taking part in a quiz along the route.
