Adelaide – The Final Leg of the Tour Down Under is by no Means the Final Bow
Shop till your hearts content… and then some more
After all the heart-pounding action of six stages of cycling, you must be exhausted from all the activities, but surely what you’ve got a little energy left to do a spot of shopping. Where better to do so than the Adelaide Arcade? Opened in 1885, this historic site is home to some of the best boutiques and specialty shops that Adelaide has to offer. It’s also deeply steeped in history and has a museum for those who are interested to learn about the ghost of the 1900s that wanders the Arcade. Either way, you’re sure to see many of the cycling elite do a little retail therapy after the hard slog they’ve put in over the past week.

Fan of sports, but all cycled out? How about some cricket and the Bradman Collection at Adelaide Oval?
If you know a thing or two about cricket, you would know that Sir Donald Bradman was the greatest batsman in the history of this particular sport. Even whilst we’re celebrating all things cycling, you can’t help but take your hat off to great sportsmanship. The Bradman Collection at the Adelaide Oval is a celebration of that sportsmanship and is housed in a state of-the-art, purpose-built museum. After six stages of pedal pounding, even the cycling teams will want to test their cricket skills at this interactive museum.
