Known for its salacious past, the West End began its transformation when the redevelopment of Adelaide Oval was completed, with pedestrian friendly laneways inviting sports fans to enjoy world class food and wine before or after a game.

Adelaide shares its award with Newstead in Brisbane and Maylands in Perth, with Lonely Planet’s Chris Zeiher saying that the changes to the precinct have been significant over the past five years.

“Wander down pedestrian friendly laneways home to award-winning bars and restaurants such as Pink Moon Saloon, or sample freshly farmed Coffin Bay oysters at the Adelaide Central Market,” Zeiher said. “The West End has emerged as a traveller triple threat offering visitors brilliant experiences morning, noon and night.”

 The fun and frivolity of Adelaide’s West End make it a great destination for businesses to base themselves, with staff able to take advantage of nearby laneways like Peel Street and Leigh Street, and the tram service giving commuters free transport throughout the CBD.

Additionally, the western end of the city offers businesses small and large easy access to nearby locations like the Adelaide Central Market, Adelaide GPO, the futuristic SAMHRI building and the new Royal Adelaide Hospital.
