For the thrill of a shop in a bubble of calm, we float off to Adelaide Central Plaza.
Some days we want a spin class, other days we’re in a gentle yoga kind of mood. Like a good workout, there are different levels of shopping and the moment you enter this grand building, you leave behind the hustle and bustle of the CBD. It’s a welcome change of pace (even for shopaholics like us) to peruse some of the most sought-after labels and stylish options for ourselves, our families and our homes.
