Rundall Mall

Rundall Mall Adelaide

The heart of Adelaide’s shopping, dining, and entertainment scene. I mean, what’s not to love? It’s pedestrian-friendly, so you won’t have to deal with pesky cars and it’s got over 1,000 retail and service outlets. And, it’s a regional mall, which I guess means it’s like the queen bee of all malls in South Australia.

Personally, I love the sculptures in the mall, they’re so cool! Have you seen the Triumphant Elephant by Salvador Dali? It’s like a giant elephant with these spindly legs and a weird trunk, but I kind of dig it. And the Malls Balls, oh the Malls Balls. These two massive silver balls are a controversial piece of art, but they certainly add character to the mall. Plus, it’s fun to take photos with them, pretending to hold them in your hand.

I’ve also noticed that Rundle Mall is different from other malls I’ve been to. It’s got a unique vibe, with its little side alleys and arcades. You can explore these hidden gems and find some amazing little shops and cafes. One of my favourites is the heritage Adelaide Arcade, it’s like stepping back in time. And then there’s the Regent Theatre, which is just stunning.

But of course, the major retailers are here too. Myer, Kmart, Target, Coles and Woolworths, it’s a one-stop-shop kind of place. And when you need a break from shopping, there are so many cafes and eateries to choose from. I love grabbing a coffee and sitting on the balcony overlooking all the activity below the Richmond Hotel.

And if you’re lucky, you might catch some street performers. They add to the fun atmosphere and keep you entertained while you shop. I once saw a guy dressed as a giant chicken playing the accordion, and let me tell you, it was a sight to behold. After this experience I had to go to the Himeji Gardens for some tranquility

Overall, Rundle Mall is a must-see when in Adelaide. It’s a place to shop, eat, explore, and just soak up the local culture. It gives you a glimpse of locals enjoying their weekend in the pretty city of Adelaide. So, put on your walking shoes and get ready to explore, because Rundle Mall is waiting for you.
