Details

Port Adelaide is a port-side region of Adelaide, approximately 14 kilometres (8.7 mi) northwest of the Adelaide CBD. It is also the namesake of the City of Port Adelaide Enfield council, a suburb, a federal and state electoral division and is the main port for the city of Adelaide. Port Adelaide played an important role in the formative decades of Adelaide and South Australia, with the port being early Adelaide's main supply and information link to the rest of the world.

These days, Port Adelaide is a rejuvenated industrial district, home to the South Australian Maritime Museum, South Australian Aviation Museum and National Railway Museum. Hart’s Mill hosts music and art events and a Sunday food market, while Fishermen’s Wharf Markets offers collectibles and vintage clothes. Self-guided tours take in 1800s buildings and heritage pubs, along with galleries and the area's eclectic shops .
