Location is Everything

Modern, clean, comfortable, well facilitated and a location that boasts only a few seconds walk to the City's retail shopping precinct, Rundle Mall, heads up Blue Galah's claims. Stunningly easy access to Adelaide's public transport system, including the links to all bus, rail and air terminals. Only a short walk in any direction, encompasses all Adelaide has to offer, including some of her 70 pubs, clubs and bars, a range of parks, China town, supermarkets, sidewalk artworks, retail shopping, her famous Churches, libraries, museums, the Casino and much, much more. We boast Adelaide's largest balcony for our guests entertainment use overlooking Adelaide's premier city street.
