Port Adelaide is approximately 15kms from Adelaide city centre.
Unless you are driving yourself – bus or train services are convenient and recommended. Bus and train services are run by Adelaide Metro. For fares etc please refer to my ‘Bus, Tram, Train – Tickets and Routes’ review. For maps and timetables http://www.adelaidemetro.com.au/Timetables-Maps.

Train trip around 20 minutes (runs every 30 minutes – less in later evening) but note that from the train station to the tourist office is a further 10 minutes walk. Trains are exactly as pictured in the attached picture – small two carriage sets.
