              Welcome to Thirst Central!

              Like a series of little oases, there are now over 450 Thirsty Camels dotted across this vast, parched land. The herd is growing daily, and chances are, we’re 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 at great prices, but we also have fun in the process. Because, let’s face it, The Highlander Bottleshop is likely your last stop before a good time. So, we say, bring it on early.

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