My Favourite App: State Library of South Australia

If you spend lots of time walking around in the Adelaide city centre, or are generally interested in the city’s history, you might enjoy a walking tour!

lostbuildings_resizedSteph from the Programs team recommends the State Library of South Australia app. The app gives you a selection of self-guided walking tours that allow you to discover Adelaide’s historic buildings, art and stories. You can explore them at your own pace and start wherever you like – the tours range from 1-2 hours and have numbered ‘stops’ where you can get information about a landmark, but you don’t have to see all of them.

So how do you go on a tour? Just open the app, choose from the list of currently offered tours, then download your chosen tour. It will then work even if your device is not connected to the Internet – but depending on your device it may be best to leave it on so you can use your device’s GPS navigation.

We hope you’re enjoying our My Favourite App posts. Everything we highlight in these blog posts is free and can be downloaded on iOS and Android devices.
