The National Trust of South Australia’s Ayers House Museum allows curious locals and tourists alike to go back in time and discover the amazing history of the area. Head underground with an experienced guide and explore the fascinating maze of tunnels that lay beneath the historic Adelaide Treasury building, which is now the Medina Grand. Walk the passageways where gold was once transported, explore the tunnels cartographers used during the 1960s to draw up detailed city maps, see the cabinet room that remains unchanged from its glory days, and much more. From there, explorers move onto the Ayers House Museum on North Terrace, which is one the last-standing Victorian houses in the city. The grand mansion has been fully restored and laid out to portray traditional 19th-century domestic life, filled with antiques, artefacts and more. Groupies enjoy access to all three levels of the museum, and there are two permanent exhibits on display to enjoy – The Life of Sir Henry Ayers, a seven-time Premier of SA, and Little Adults: An Interpretation of Victorian Childhood.
Run by the National Trust of South Australia, this tour traverses some of the most historically-significant buildings in South Australia, and is both fascinating and insightful. All tours are led by experienced, knowledgeable and entertaining guides who are passionate about what they do. When Groupies return from their trip back in time, they enjoy a delicious afternoon tea.
