East End Escapade
Learn more about the wealthy occupied mansions of East and South Terraces and the growing middle class who lived in Victorian villas in Halifax and Gilles Streets. If you like serenity, then the south-eastern part of the CBD of Adelaide is the place for you. Find out more about how some of the former residents made their fortunes and what they did for a living. Hear stories relating to our colonial past, including an agricultural machinery pioneer, wealthy pastoralists, shop-keepers, an early music promoter, mail coach and river steam boat entrepreneurs, politicians, scientists and many others. As we wind our way through some of the leafy streets, you almost forget you are still within the city confines.
