State Library of South Australia

Recommended
Designed by architect EJ Woods, the lavish Mortlock Wing Library (1884) never fails to make an impression. Embark on a timeless journey and tiptoe into this huge French Renaissance-style room, where the woodwork and rows of old books contrast with the laptops of the students working here. There is also a small exhibition dedicated to the major themes of South Australian history.
