  • Lovely friendly staff. Beautiful building clean and quiet. Interesting artwork
  • A warm and inviting place to quietly explore and take in our history. Would really love to see traditional bush tucker available for lunch
  • You can see the real culture, history and tradition under one roof, must visit place in Adelaide
  • Cool to see this, more people should learn about true Australian culture.
  • Went to the exhibition currently on about maralinga. Highly recommend to go see it and ask about upcoming events this year. Friendly staff and nice little shop which helps community and artists.

Where to stay in Adelaide

Most budget-friendly rooms in Adelaide cluster in the central business district, with plenty of backpacker accommodations located near the city's central bus station. Adelaide also boasts an outstanding public transport system, which makes staying outside the central areas a viable and economical option for sightseers. Look for quiet and affordable rooms in North Adelaide, a leafy neighborhood filled with an eclectic mix of shopping and dining options. Book early for visits during peak season, and expect higher prices on the weekends and during school holidays.
