Welcome to thirst Central!

Like little oasis, there are now over 450 Thirsty Camels dotted around this great, parched land. The herd is growing by the day, and chances are we are just up the road from you. A Thirsty Camel Bottleshop that is ­ not an actual camel.

As you can probably tell, we’re not your average bottleshop. Sure we sell everything you’d expect ­ and at good prices ­ but we also have fun in the process. Because, let’s face it, the Highlander bottleshop is probably your last stop before a good time. So bring it on early we say.

With its huge selection of boutique beers & wines, knowledgeable staff and long opening hours it’s no wonder The Highlander is rated one of Adelaide’s most preferred drive­thru bottleshops.
