Do you want to go behind the scenes & learn about the R.M.Williams legend?
A definitive symbol of South Australia, R.M.Williams’ journey from swagman to millionaire is reflected in the iconic R.M.Williams hand-crafted Chelsea-style boots. Today you’ll discover the legacy of R.M.Williams and explore the workshop with a private behind the scenes tour, complete with a personal fitting for your own pair of boots, combining the practical styling of rugged bushman aesthetic with style and comfort.
After breakfast at your accommodation, you’ll be met by your private local guide and driven to the R.M.Williams workshop, just north of Adelaide City. Take an excursion through the site and learn about this beloved Australian staple.
You’ll have a brief interlude to enjoy some morning tea and good conversation with your private guide and your R.M. host.
Following your tour of the workshop, you’ll visit the R.M.Williams Percy Street store and Museum. Here, you can peruse the gallery of boots and discover the history of the brand. You’ll also have a personal fitting with your very own pair of Craftsman boots to take home—or wear out the door.
On conclusion of this half-day tour, you’ll be delivered back to your accommodation by your private guide.
