Bunnik Tours paints the town Red!

18-months in the making, the last pieces of scaffolding were finally removed last week from Bunnik Tours’ head office in Flinders Street, Adelaide. Dating back to 1928, Bunnik House was in need of some tender love and repair.

Rather than stick with the standard Adelaide theme of cream or charcoal, Bunnik Tours took inspiration from their travels around the world and added some much-needed colour into the CBD.

“When we travel the world, we see the most amazingly colourful buildings of Scandinavia, Italy, South America and Jodhpur in India. We really wanted to bring that back to Adelaide and add some colour to our home town,’ explained founder Marion Bunnik.

“In going with the bright red and cream colour scheme, we have brought the building’s original ornate features to life. I believe the original architect would be very happy with the result.”

Purchased by Bunnik Tours back in 2010, the building, which is located at located at 45 Flinders Street, has taken close to a decade to complete. “We are quite proud of our building, it has taken us eight years to restore, and we did it with a great sense of fun and care. We think it has really brightened up our city”, Marion says.

Prior to the external work, Bunnik Tours renovated the building’s entire interior including its imposing grand ballroom, which was fitted with a stage and is now home to various events, including fringe shows in previous years.

“Since we have started painting we have noticed many people stopping to take photos, it has become quite the attraction. We proudly call Adelaide home, so are very happy to have played our part in adding a bit of colour to the city.”

Bunnik Tours are an Adelaide based small group touring company, that send Australians on inclusive tours across the world. You can find out more about them at
