The Minories is a street (and a precinct) of Port Adelaide which was once a suburb named after a parish in London. Having been built on the junction of the Port River and Tam O'shanter Creek it was notorious for tidal flooding in the old days. Still locally known as The Minories, the area is now developed with a mix of old and new houses it retains all the maritime character of the port along with plenty of interesting things to see and do.

Joyce Snadden Reserve - The Minories

The Minories is home to Joyce Snadden Reserve which is situated on an inlet that's perfect to take kids fishing for the first time. The reserve has a rotunda with tables and chairs right next to a well kitted out kids playground in the middle of a wide green and landscaped space. The green space stretches back to the Port Canal shopping centre via the Old Canal Park.

Walking Paths at The Minories

The Port River is a unique dolphin sanctuary within a city. While you sit on the rocks and try to land a fish, or walk along the waterfront footpaths you will often see pairs of dolphins swim by.

There are also plenty of historical little cottages dotted around the nearby streets and the area is just across the road from the popular and now renewed Harts Mill precinct. The Minories is an easy place to take fussy kids fishing with plenty of parking and amenities nearby.
