Cafes, restaurants and bars
Just 50 meters away is cosmopolitan Rundle Street, with a colourful array of cafes, restaurants and shops. You can eat your way around the world on one street. With restaurants serving Greek, Indian, Italian, delicious pub fare, as well as everything Asian, you won’t be short of a choice. And for those sunny Adelaide afternoons, select one of the many outdoor tables at a range of pubs and hotels including the Austral, Exeter or Stag or any number of licensed cafes and bars.
Representing the best of Australian fashion, you could easily spend your day browsing the racks of designers such as Alannah Hill, Lisa Ho, Morrison, sass & bide, Zimmermann, or for the men, don't miss Jack London and Calibre. Rundle Street also plays host to a bookshop, convenience stores, travel agent, jewellery shops, hairdressers, beauty salons and a day spa.
A short stroll up the street and you will find Rundle Mall, with even more of the best shops Australia has to offer. Rundle Mall is the heartbeat of Adelaide with major department stores, 15 arcades and more than 800 retailers, of which 160 are speciality fashion stores. If you’re visiting from overseas, you might like to take home a sparkling piece of South Australia at one of the opal specialists. Adelaide is the centre of the world's opal industry, offering beautifully coloured opals, which are often called "fire in the stone". The mines can be found in various South Australian outback desert towns including Coober Pedy, Andamooka and Mintabie, and the opals are really something special. You will also find banks, currency exchange offices, a large supermarket and much more along this busy pedestrian only mall.
On nearby North Terrace, you can discover Adelaide’s cultural boulevard. Here you’ll find the Art Gallery of South Australia, South Australian Museum, State Library, along with other museums and many historical and contemporary sculptures. A little further down North Terrace, but still only 20 minutes walk from the Majestic Roof Garden Hotel, you will find the Adelaide Casino and the expansive Adelaide Convention Centre. This magnificent, modern riverside building plays host to most of Adelaide's major conferences and conventions.
At the junction of North Terrace and King William Street, you might like to see what’s playing at the Adelaide Festival Centre or few minutes’ walk to the north you could take a tour of the historic Adelaide Oval. Widely regarded as one of the most picturesque cricket grounds in the world, this historic icon of Australian culture is a leisurely stroll from all of the Majestic apartments and hotels in Adelaide.
A delight for the young and young-at-heart, the Adelaide Zoo is a perfect chance to get close to some of Australia's most famous and unique wildlife.

You can walk to the Zoo from your hotel or take a free connector bus.
