Adelaide in a day

Thanks to the small size of Adelaide's network, it's quite possible to explore every line, even branch lines, in a day. The following sample timetables were constructed with the goal of a city start after 9am, preferably 9:30, and 1 hour for lunch. As Tonsley is mostly an hourly service it dictates some times, also changing beteen branch lines seems to be easiest in an anti-clockwise manner, hence southern and western lines are grouped. A fair bit of the timetables can be shifted forward or backward by an hour, however before 9am and after 3pm times tend to change, and some trains service fewer stops.

I have no guarantees about lunch locations, some are just guesses.

Station Shops Other interests
Belair No idea National park, historic station
Gawler Central Main st Gawler: historic station
Sailsbury John St Lots of shops, bus interchange
Outer Harbour No idea! Passenger terminal (ships)
Pt Adelaide Nearby Lots of meuseums, sometimes markets
Grange Deli's and servos Beach within walking distance
Noarlunga No idea! No idea!
