University of Adelaide Grandstand

War Memorial Drive NORTH ADELAIDE

The University of Adelaide Grandstand is significant as an outstanding example of an early-20th century sporting building and as a representative of the establishment and development of formal recreational facilities in the Adelaide Parklands. As one of the first two sports buildings constructed by the University of Adelaide, it also demonstrates the emergence of the philosophy that sport and sporting achievement are an important part of tertiary education and student life. The building also has important associations with the expansion and development of the University of Adelaide.
