Zeb, Eider and the humans took Adelaide’s free city bus to view monuments and more. This statue is in memory of those who fell serving and defending Australia.
The Honorable Dame Roma Mitchell is honored here.
She is a former Governor of South Australia, a former Chancellor at the University of Adelaide and a former Judge on the Supreme Court of South Australia. Wow! She was a great lady! Here is the front of the Memorial remembering those lost in World War I and World War II.
This is the back of the Memorial.
Humans also walk inside the memorial to view additional exhibits. The streets of Adelaide are very clean. These trash containers are part of the reason.
Put trash in one place and cigarette butts in another place and keep Adelaide clean. The Art Gallery of South Australia hosts a special exhibit.
Sir Walter Watson Hughes, one of the founders of and the first donor to the University of Adelaide, is honored here.
Sir Douglas Mawson, Professor of Geology and Mineralogy was also an Antarctic scientist and explorer.
Australia honors many of its outstanding citizens. Adelaide is also home to the premier retail area of South Australia. Rundle Mall became Australia’s first pedestrian mall in 1976. We wandered around Rundle Mall just before sunset.
The street is lined with world famous retail stores.
We like the sculptures also. This fountain appeals to us. We find water soothing.
Malls with flower shops always seem more friendly.
Of course, mom found the local chocolate store.
We are glad she did; the chocolate was delicious. We like Adelaide. Tomorrow we will show you a little more before we leave town.
I liked the colorful fountain, chocolate shop and the War Memorial. Great photos.
Thanks for reading and commenting. Rundle Mall was very nice and the chocolate was excellent!
