Ever been caught in a situation where you’ve missed your train and you have 15 minutes to kill for the next one? Luckily, the Adelaide Railway Station now has FIVE new stores to be explored, providing a range of food and drinks.
The arrival of the businesses is part of a three-year revitalisation project being led by Renewal SA on behalf of the state government that will see the station grow and diversify its retail offerings.
Renewal SA Director of City Projects, Matt Hunt, said the five new outlets will play an important role in breathing new life into Adelaide’s treasured historic terminal.
“Each new business offers something unique to the Adelaide Railway Station experience and two of our new tenants,” says Hunt. “The new tenancies will rejuvenate the main station ramp after a period of dormancy and offer commuters a diverse mix of retail options spanning beauty and makeup, sustainable coffee and delicious local and international food and drink.”
Have a look below to what each business has to offer.
