Cas Culture

An inspired stroll around the city. 

Activated, vibrant, renewed and curated. 

Cas doesn’t care what adjective you use. Like Cas, Adelaide smells of one thing - culture. Cas is going to show you just why the arts are so eagerly celebrated here and why the streets convert to a bouquet of performance during the festival season. Dimly lit laneway venues, experimental arts spaces and well-curated vinyl collections will be coming up on your radar.

Start the day off with a top coffee and hearty brekky at this leafy nook.
