Port Adelaide is a sea port city with a unique, salty tang to its environs. It is the historic maritime heart of South Australia and home to some of the finest historic buildings in the State.
Officially established in 1940, only four years after the foundation of South Australia, Port Adelaide played an integral role in the colonial development of South Australia.
The First migrants though, wading through mud of nearby “Port Misery” had a daunting start to a new life in the fledgling colony. .By the 1870’s however wharves were built, solid stone warehouses and homes were erected and signs of Port Adelaide’s prosperity were evident.
