North Shore Mums have always known the North Shore is THE place to be, and it seems UK superstar Adele agrees! The Hello singer, who has a son Angelo with husband Simon Konecki, has reportedly moved into the stately Clifton estate at Hunters Hill, and was even seen stocking up on kid’s toys at Kidstuff in Lane Cove, then heading to Taronga Zoo. Here’s all the hotspots Adele has tried…and where you might catch a glimpse of the star.
1. Hanging out in Hunters Hill
Although Adele is travelling around Australia, a Hunters Hill mansion will remain her home base for the duration of her tour.
The 120-year-old waterfront property rents for a reported $AU25,000 a week and sits across a whopping 5,124 square metres. The mansion boats a stately sandstone exterior, and inside crystal chandeliers hang from the ceilings.
2. Stocking up at Kidstuff
The loving mum was next spotted shopping for toys at Kidstuff in Lane Cove – but she was so low-key store worker Derek said he didn’t even recognise her at first, but when he spoke to her, he said he knew because “I heard the accent.’”
After spending about 15 minutes in the shop, Adele spent $165 on beach equipment, and the staff later celebrated their brush with fame by changing their store display.
I’ve got an easel out the front that says ‘Welcome to Kidstuff’, and I’ve changed it and put ‘Even Adele chose us'” Derek says.

3. Trekking to Taronga Zoo
No visit to Australia is complete without a trip to Taronga Zoo, and Adele was no different! The 28-year-old Hello singer was also spotted visiting Sydney’s famous Taronga Zoo with her four-year-old son Angelo.
Opting for a casual ensemble, Adele sported a floral off-shoulder dress, teamed with a pair of closed white shoes, just like any of us would for a day out- and when the star took her young son Angelo to meet the animals housed at the Mosman zoo, he seemed particularly taken with the giraffes!
