SAAM is open for business every day from 10am to 4pm (except christmas day).
Access to SAAM has changed due to the construction of the Port Dock Rail Project.
The Lipson Street entrance is now permanently closed for cars, bikes and pedestrians.
Our new vehicle entrance is at 16 Bedford Street, Port Adelaide.
This is near the corner of Bedford Street and Perkins Drive, and is very near the Port Adelaide exit of the Port River Expressway. There are temporary signs in place and permanent signs are to come later. Click here for a map
