peace and tranquillity of the river, parks and wetlands as you ride deeper into
the corners of the city past the Torrens Weir, under the railway and onto the

parklands we take at stop for some revitalising morning tea at the quirky Red
House café, which has taken over the old railway station at North Adelaide.

parklands provide a unique and incredibly important feature of Adelaide’s
