Dreaming of a Day Wandering

Since our new opening at North Terrace in Hackney, we’ve been dreaming of a day wandering Adelaide. Here’s what we would get up to on a day out in Adelaide.

We’d recommend starting the day with coffee at MooBar by Moorooroo our fantastic new metropolitan cellar door, wine bar and cafe. A light breakfast of coffee and pastries or some of Wyndham’s freshly baked sourdough is the perfect start to any day!

From there it’s just a few hundred metres to the Adelaide Botanic gardens, take a leisurely stroll through the gardens to North Terrace. Wander along North Terrace and enjoy the historic buildings that line Adelaide’s university district.

Once you reach King William Street you can jump on the tram (for just one stop) or continue to walk up to Waymouth Street. Lunch at Adelaide institution Georges on Waymouth is always a highlight. Enjoy their award-winning menu and service, and keep an eye out for your favourite Moorooroo wines on their wine list.

After an awesome lunch, head up to the Adelaide Central Market, established in 1869 the markets are the thriving hub of Adelaide’s food culture. You can browse and purchase the best quality produce and small goods, pastries and cheeses, books, flowers, nuts, coffee and a whole host of specialty stores. 

Head back to the tram and finish up your day back at MooBar by Moorooroo. Enjoy some olives harvested from the gorgeous, mature trees in our courtyard and savour one of our wine experiences in one of our private tasting rooms.

If you’re looking for more to do you can wander through the parklands to Palace Nova Eastend to enjoy arthouse cinema or head over to North Adelaide and enjoy a generous dinner at L’Italy, another of our favourite eateries.

There’s so much to see and do (and especially eat and drink) in our home city Adelaide, we hope you enjoy some of our suggestions.

In Bottle

With a sophisticated aroma of blackcurrant, eucalyptus and pepper, the 2016 Lotties tastes of blueberry and clove with a tannin profile that lends a sense of refinement. A spicy finish that is open and persistent makes for a Lotties vintage that cries out for bitey cheeses, bitter chocolate and robust red meats. This is truly an astonishing Barossa red!
