Adelaide Tours-Old Adelaide Treasury and Z Ward

Explore two of Adelaide’s most fascinating historic sites in one day! This special Christmas offer combines our two most popular tours for a unique journey into South Australia’s past.

In the morning, join us at the Treasury, once the heart of government from colonial times to the 1960s. Follow us through winding hallways and underground chambers to meet the colourful characters and deep history behind this working hotel.

Then meet us at Z Ward, the former ‘criminal ward’ that for 90 years housed patients on the overlapping edge of the health and criminal justice systems. A remarkable piece of Victorian-era design that belies its at times confronting legacy, join us behind the Ha Ha Wall to explore the building and its sobering history.

Tours begin at 11am at Treasury, and 2 pm at Z Ward. For detailed directions and public transport options visit


Cost: Adult $25, Concession $20, National Trust Member $17.50, Child $15
