Visitor Information Centre

Take a deep breath of fresh sea air and get ready to experience South Australia’s maritime heartland. Start a trip to the Port at the Visitor Information Centre, affectionately known as the VIC, and get all the information you need to make the most from your experience

The Port Adelaide Visitor Information Centre (the VIC) is in an 1860 heritage-listed building which originally housed the customs, courts, police station and jail cells.

There are several beautifully presented exhibition rooms in the VIC, with an Art Gallery that features a changing exhibition of works by local artists each month. The VIC also has an extensive selection of brochures and maps to assist travellers, and the original jail cells are open for visitors to explore.

The centre offers free bike hire, including kids' bikes, providing the option for travellers to enjoy cycling around the Port’s State Heritage Area, the Waterfront Loop Path and the nearby Coast Park. Make sure to step into the VIC's Adelaide Dolphin Sanctuary Display Room to discover more about the fascinating world of the area’s wild dolphins and their natural environment, which includes the Port River.

The VIC's friendly team can assist you to make the most of your visit to the Port and its surrounds by providing you with the latest attractions and event information.
