This mall – which is made up of 15 buildings and plazas – is the longest and one of the busiest found in Australia. You'll have access to the city's best shops here, including David Jones, Jay Jays, Ted Baker London and Haigh's Chocolates. Plus, Rundle Mall is home to a variety of restaurants, food concession stands, grocery stores and banks, so you can grab a quick bite or exchange currency while taking a shopping break.

Previous shoppers praised Rundle Mall's diverse selection and friendly staff, although some said this mall was a bit of a letdown after visiting those found in Sydney and Melbourne. If you want a more unique experience, stop by during Adelaide Festival in March when comedians, magicians, dancers and circus artists perform on-site. You'll rub elbows with more tourists at this time, but many visitors said the street performances were top-notch.

Rundle Mall sits between North Terrace and Grenfell and Currie streets in downtown Adelaide. Adelaide Metro's free tram and City Connector buses make stops at the mall, or you can walk to the shopping center from must-visit sights like the South Australian Museum and the Art Gallery of South Australia. Multiple fee-based bus routes also have stops by the mall. Motorists can park at one of seven parking garages for 4 to 17 Australian dollars (or $3 to $13) per vehicle. You're welcome to walk around the property – which is typically open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily, with reduced or extended hours on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays – for free. A complete store directory, parking fees and more are available on Rundle Mall's website.
