Adelaide, Australia’s Rundle Mall and Memorials with Zeb and Eider Duck

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.

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.

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.

We thought this trash container is pretty clever

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.

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.

We like the sculptures also.   This fountain appeals to us.   We find water soothing.

Malls with flower shops always seem more friendly.
