Due South Australia : Due South Australia 2016
ADELAIDE 20 | DUE SOUTH AUSTRALIA | ADELAIDE | www.duesouthaustralia.com.au T here’s a revolution taking place across Adelaide’s major shopping precincts including Rundle Mall, Burnside Village, The Parade, King William Road and the ubercool East End. Rundle Mall, the city’s best-known retail address, has just emerged from a lengthy makeover and is looking better than ever. Mobile food vans, flower sellers and street performers complement the vibrant, new-look mall. Apart from department stores, Rundle Mall is home to a number of international fashion brands, including Apple, Tiffany & Co. and Ted Baker, pavement cafés, food courts and several popular arcades, including Adelaide Arcade. Searching for something a little quirkier? Then walk further along Rundle Street to the city’s East End which offers an impressive range of small fashion boutiques, funky homewares stores, gift shops, chocolatiers, hipster cafés, pubs and art house cinemas. Make sure you wander down Ebenezer Place. Once part of the original fruit and vegetable market, this pedestrian walkway now contains an intriguing mix of retailers, food outlets, bars, cafés and wine merchants. Council of Objects stocks beautiful glassware, ADELAIDE Shopping textiles, ceramics and wooden objects – all handmade in Australia, while Midwest Trader sells everything from Varsity sweatshirts to aviator jackets, buffalo hide gloves, hand-tooled riding boots and Red Wing work boots. Complete your retail odyssey with a visit to East End Cellars, Adelaide’s finest independent wine merchant; the emporium also serves delicious light lunches. Dedicated fashionistas will also want to explore King William Road in the leafy suburb of Hyde Park – a 10 minute bus ride from the city centre. With its cobbled road, vine covered awnings, compact cafés and up-market clothing shops, King William Road is one of Adelaide’s most exclusive shopping streets. Local designer Liza Emanuele is a long-term resident, while Wildchild Stylelab appeals to a younger demographic. To finish off an exhausting day of shopping in style, settle in for a cocktail at Melt and then move onto one of the street’s established dining rooms like Assaggio Ristorante, Parisi’s or Marrakech. Enjoy a nightcap at Spats Coffee Lounge, famous for its romantic atmosphere and desserts. The perfect day! Burnside Village, located in the leafy eastern suburbs, is another Adelaide shopping hot spot celebrated as the home of high-end fashion. Zara, Scanlan Theodore, Witchery, Cue, Karen Millen, Oroton, Sass & Bide, Willow and Calibre are just some of the brands that have their Adelaide home here – in fact you’ll find over 100 stores inside this well-planned and airy space, selling everything from sportswear to giftware, homewares and designer jewellery. Just 10 minutes’ drive from the city centre, Burnside is also an excellent place for a long lunch or a coffee with ample free parking. Those looking for a bargain should definitely check out Harbour Town, a bustling factory outlet complex. This is a great place to pick up the latest fashion, sportswear, children’s wear, luggage or jewellery at heavily discounted prices.
