If you are into antiques, this is your kind of town
We are blessed in Adelaide to have so many secondhand and antique stores, however, when you want to visit a few in the same day, it takes precious time, petrol and money to get there. So you may be wondering where is it you can find a cluster of great antique stores all within metres of each other?

Antique stores everywhere


A picturesque 57 km from Adelaide lies the Heritage Town of Strathalbyn. If you have never been there, it is worth the drive simply for how beautiful the town centre is. The Angas River flows through the middle of the evergreen Soldiers Memorial Gardens, an old yet solid bridge allows traffic flow and incredible photographs, the pub, little shops and cafes dotted around add life and motion.

A very short walk from the town centre, you will find High Street. This is where the fun begins! Not only is this street full of historic spots such as:The Robin Hood Hotel, London House, The Institute and Town Hall, but it is also a great spot if you like anything old. Anywhere you turn you can see a little or big antique shops, enthusiastic shoppers walking around reminiscing, checking the worth of some items and listening to the intricate stories of these rare objects.

You will find anything from crockery, toys, jewellery, tins, medical equipment, jars, clothes, furniture, mirrors, fine China ... the list could go on forever! You will come across the strangest items, the most unique jewellery and intricate objects!
