Free Showers in Adelaide Updated 5 November 2020 Most showers have been locked down, but some are still open. This guide is inaccurate and it is best to phone each service provider and ask about their virus precautions.
Finding a clean shower is extremely difficult. Light Square T.A.F.E. and most educational institutions have showers, but access can be tricky. Most homeless shower services offer towels, soap, shampoo and razors. The Gawler Visitors’ Centre showers are the best in Adelaide, but you have to take your own towel and soap.
