Serving as the capital of South Australia, Adelaide is a vibrant, artsy city that has been nicknamed the “City of Churches”. It features elegant 19th-century architecture and beautiful public gardens, as well as an eclectic range of cafes and restaurants showcasing local South Australian produce.
Take a stroll along North Terrace where the South Australian Museum and Art Gallery of South Australia are both found, then go shopping along the famous pedestrian strip of Rundle Mall. This extends to lively Rundle Street in the East End, which is packed with one-of-a-kind boutiques, as well as restaurants and bars that ignite after dark. The surrounding lane ways have been transformed with tapas bars and ethnic restaurants, as well as a great selection of cafes serving high-quality coffee.
Wander through the nearby Botanic Gardens or tour the Adelaide Oval, which is home to the Bradman Collection honoring this much-loved Australian cricketer. Don’t miss a visit to the Central Market where everything from fresh fruit and vegetables to artisan bread, gourmet meats and seafood are for sale.
Then jump on one of the historic trams that journey to the beachside suburb of Glenelg to relax on the sands or enjoy the alfresco cafes. Alternatively, head to historic Port Adelaide to discover its ornate 19th-century buildings and pubs, as well as the Maritime Museum that celebrates the region’s seafaring culture.
Embark on a scenic drive through the beautiful Adelaide Hills, dotted with wildlife parks and classic country towns, or venture south into the magnificent grape-growing region of McLaren Vale to sample South Australia’s renowned wines.
