Colonial Buildings in Adelaide

There are thousands of colonial buildings left in Australia, dating 1820-1920. The architecture is a unique blend of Victorian extravagance combined with practical wide verandas adopted from India, where many of the troops and diplomats were stationed. Almost all are protected by the National Trust or local bylaws. Entire streets and some neighborhoods retain their original streetscapes…
