Adelaide Sights


Ayers House Review

Between 1855 and 1897 this sprawling colonial structure was the home of Sir Henry Ayers, South Australia's premier and the man for whom Uluru was originally named Ayers Rock. Most rooms—including the unusual Summer Sitting Room, in the cool of the basement—have been restored with period furnishings, and the state's best examples of 19th-century costumes are sometimes displayed in changing exhibitions. Admission includes a one-hour tour, but if you want to travel back to 1876, book the After Dark Tour (A$16) ahead of time.
