In the centre of Adelaide’s CBD, this large city square is where you will find some of the most important buildings in the state, including many historic sites.

Victoria Square marks the centre of Adelaide and is home to many of the city’s most significant buildings. Walk past the Supreme Court of South Australia, the Federal Court of Australia, the Adelaide General Post Office and the office of the Premier. Looming high above you, see the picturesque spire of the Roman Catholic Church of St. Francis Xavier.

The site was known by the indigenous Kaurna people as Tarndanyangga. Since 1837, the square has been named after Queen Victoria.

Arrive in Victoria Square by wandering through the busy commercial district of central Adelaide or by riding one of the five remaining H-Class trams that operate on weekends and holidays. The historic trams are city icons and riding them is a family-friendly experience.

Explore the square on foot to discover its many delights. On the western side, you’ll find the Adelaide Central Market. Pick up some lunch or a light snack before you explore the expansive aisles of stalls. Along with gourmet food and fresh local produce, the market has stalls offering handmade souvenirs, clothing and electronic equipment.

Admire the architecture lining the four sides of Victoria Square as you sit in the centre. With nearly two centuries of history, visitors to the city can experience all periods of Adelaide’s architectural legacy in this central location. Notice the large statue of Queen Victoria in the middle of the square.

Visit the square in January of each year to see the exciting final stage of the Tour Down Under, Australia’s premier international cycling event.

The square is open daily and there is no admission fee. Some metered parking and private car parks can be found in the area.
