Port Adelaide's Art Deco Architectural Delights

Harbours Building (Christopher Burns)

Join the Art Deco & Modernism Society of Australia, Adelaide Chapter for a walking tour of the Art Deco architectural delights of Port Adelaide. Art Deco was a global design phenomenon in the years between WWI and WWII, and influenced everything from architecture, transport and industrial design, to art and fashion. We know Port Adelaide for its colonial architecture, but there are many fine Art Deco examples also. Find out where they are located, understand and enjoy their story. Meeting Place: National Railway Museum car park. Walk is at a moderate pace and takes approximately 1.5 hours.
