Ade­laide

The City of Churches is the arts heart of Aus­tralia, thanks to its strong fes­ti­val cul­ture. Un­sur­pris­ingly, there’s plenty of cre­ative re­tail, too.

City

Start at Run­dle Mall and its her­itage ar­cades. In the Re­gent Ar­cade, there are men’s goods at Tether, dessertin­spired beauty at Oh Deer Su­gar and lo­cally de­signed menswear at Cre­ated Range. The Ade­laide Ar­cade in Gren­fell Street is home to the Ade­laide Comics Cen­tre and quirky But­ton Bar. For lo­cal creations rang­ing from ceram­ics to fur­ni­ture, visit Ur­ban Cow Stu­dio on Vaughan Place, Coun­cil of Ob­jects on Ebenezer Place, or JamFac­tory on Mor­phett Street.

Nor­wood

A 10-minute bus ride from the city and you’re in leafy Nor­wood, where most of the re­tail out­lets line The Pa­rade. Bird­cage Bou­tique has a se­lect col­lec­tion of la­bels, in­clud­ing Fin­ders Keep­ers, while Out­doors on Pa­rade bursts with colour­ful home­wares. At Bet­ter World Arts, buy eth­i­cally sourced Abo­rig­i­nal art and crafts, in­clud­ing lac­quer­ware. Brick + Mor­tar Cre­ative, around the cor­ner on Ge­orge Street, is a hub for lo­cal de­sign­ers and artists, com­plete with cool cafe.
