After pick-up from your accommodation, travel to the original 'Port Misery' where you'll explore the history of Port Adelaide, Largs Bay and Semaphore.

Explore how the early settlers of Australia travelled across the world to make a new home in a foreign land.

Visit historic Torrens Island Quarantine Station, once the state's first line of defence for containing transferable diseases before heading over to the Clipper Ship City of Adelaide, one of only two surviving composite clipper ships.

After lunch, visit the SA Maritime Museum, a repository of thousands of items documenting the history of Port Adelaide. View the collection of mastheads, hear about the 'Mosquito Fleet' who plied their trade around SA waters and read the 'Scuttlebutt' about early life behind the scenes in Port Adelaide.

There will be free time in Port Adelaide before you hear about the historic boat sheds and the boats built at Fletchers Slip. Take a wander up Semaphore Road with its village feel and range of boutique shops and cafes. If there's time, head for a photo stop at the iconic Largs Pier Hotel on the way home before they drop you back to your accommodation in time for tea.
