Stately Swagger

90 minutes

This walking tour takes clients through the western part of North Adelaide and features villas and semi-detached houses built during the boom period of the 1880’s – learn about some of the early colonial families of Adelaide who lived here. A quiet area of North Adelaide is visited, trimming the fringe of the parklands where we see one of the largest sub-divisions in Adelaide back in the 1880’s and swing by a Priory, two Churches and many beautiful examples of built heritage mainly used for residential purposes. Discover some of the links between some of our prominent wealthy families in colonial Adelaide and how many of them were able to build some larger mansions in this part of North Adelaide. Contrasts can be seen with visual evidence of the working class cottages and row housing for those that would have struggled to make a living, including plasterers, limeburners, tea tasters, and artists.
