Whilst Adelaide may be known as the city of churches, the history of this remarkable area is not just confined to religious buildings. The first train departed Adelaide Station in 1856, the suburban tram network commenced with horse drawn trams in 1878 and the Adelaide Zoo opened in 1883, making it the second oldest Zoo in Australia. Many of the Zoo's buildings are classified by the National Trust of South Australia, whilst being at the forefront of many current day conservation programs. The Tram network is still operational today - catching the tram to the beautiful Glenelg Beach is practically an institution. And the states only table gaming license is held by the Casino, which is housed in part of the historic Railway Station. So, whilst enjoying the contemporary, you can also experience much of the history that this marvellous city has to offer.
