Adelaide is a destination which seamlessly transitions from a bustling hub of city activity to a focus upon outdoors lifestyle, sport and well being. Some of the Riverbank’s sporting clubs and venues are amongst the oldest in the state, while in recent times Adelaide has also welcomed our national pastime, AFL, back into the heart of the city.

Adelaide Oval

Having hosted AFL and cricket since Colonial times, the iconic Adelaide Oval has been redeveloped to as world class sporting facility that pays homage to the historic and cultural roots of the arena.

With a capacity of 53 583, the Oval hosts home matches for both the Adelaide Football Club and Port Adelaide Football Club, as well as Domestic T20 Cricket and International Test, One Day and T20 competitions. It is also used as an entertainment venue, having hosted the likes of the Rolling Stones and AC/DC since its redevelopment was completed in 2014.

Connected to the south bank of the Torrens by a massive 255 metre long foot bridge, Adelaide Oval is open during the day where you can take the challenge of walking on the roof of their southern and western stands, enjoy The Bradman Collection museum or take part in guided tours of the facilities.

Linear Park Trail & Park Lands

The City of Adelaide is well known for its beautiful park lands which surround the CBD and North Adelaide. Along the Riverbank runs the River Torrens Linear Park Trial, which extends from the foot of the Mount Lofty Ranges all the way to the ocean and the Gulf Of St Vincent.

The City section of the trail runs alongside northern park lands, home to sporting clubs from across the city and associated with both University of South Australia and University of Adelaide. It also allows access to destinations such as the Adelaide Zoo and Adelaide Botanic Gardens, several of Adelaide’s rowing clubs, and the front face of the Adelaide Festival Centre, Adelaide Convention Centre and Elder Park.

It’s an idyllic environment to soothe the sense with some yoga or energise with a range of outdoor activities.
