Mall's Balls Landmark - Rundle Mall

Ask any South Australian "What are the Mall's balls?" and they will tell you without hesitation.

Usually it goes along the lines of "Oh, they are these stupid balls that sit in the Rundle Mall", but even still, we say this with pride.

Paris has the Eiffel Tower.

London has Big Ben.

Adelaide has got two massive balls.

Here you will find a recent original photo of this great landmark that all South Aussies adore.

If you wish to visit this landmark, it is located here:
