Lost Port Adelaide

Port Adelaide is a historic area with its own distinct character, reflected in the significant buildings that today provide insight into Port Adelaide’s past. There is also noteworthy history to be discovered in what is no longer there. Join us on a walk through Port Adelaide as we hear fascinating stories of Lost Port Adelaide: South Australia’s first powerhouse was built in the Port with street lights turned on in 1899; the English and Australasian Copper Company smelted copper for the Kapunda and Burra Mines, and the Prince Alfred Sailors Home provided services for sailors from faraway places. Bookings essential.
