The Parade is the café, restaurant and shopping heart of Norwood, one of Adelaide's cosmopolitan inner city suburbs.
You'll find plenty of cafés with outdoor tables, appetising restaurants featuring cuisine from Italian to Thai, Spanish to Indian.
The Parade is arguably home to Adelaide's best florist and bookstores, and the legendary Vari's Italian grocery. Stop for a movie at the cinema complex. Buy up big at the fashion and beauty stores. Two much-loved Parade events are the annual Food, Wine and Music fair in February and the Christmas Pageant in late November.
You can follow the Norwood historical walk – a series of plaques in The Parade's footpath that detail the lives of some famous people. These include famed author May Gibbs, who wrote Snugglepot and Cuddlepie. There's also a plaque for Aussie poet CJ Dennis who wrote The Sentimental Bloke – he once lived in Norwood.
The Parade is just 10 minutes drive from the Adelaide city centre – some may even enjoy the walk there, especially when such a treat is waiting on the other side!
