Adelaide Travel Guide

Adelaide: giant country town, less stress, happy people and lots to see and do. The trick to enjoying your stay in Adelaide is to find its hidden gems… just ask the locals! Adelaide is full of, and surrounded by, awesome cafes, pubs, beaches, wineries and scenic destinations.

  • Eat & drink local produce & enjoy live music in Adelaide’s vast array of cool pubs
  • Catch the tram to Glenelg beach or the train to historic Port Adelaide and Semaphore beach
  • Hang out in Rundle Street, Gouger Street (Central Markets) & Hindley Street
  • Jump on a free bicycle
  • Head for the hills

If you have a car, our beaches stretch for miles (north and south), or head east into the Adelaide hills. Our beautiful city is literally surrounded by wine regions, with each region bringing its own unique setting to the party. Enjoy free tastings by the sea, amongst giant gum trees, in green rolling valleys or vineyards hidden away on the slopes of the Adelaide hills.

Visit the many National & Conservation Parks including Innes National Park (3 hour drive) & Deep Creek Conservation Park (1.5 hour drive).

Visit the wine regions such as Clare Valley (2 hour drive), Barossa Valley (45 minute drive), McLaren Vale (45 minute drive) and Adelaide Hills (30 minute drive).

Head ‘overseas’ to stunning Kangaroo Island

If you are travelling without a vehicle, there are many other options for you, including tours to Kangaroo Island, Barossa Valley wine region, Hahndorf ‘German’ Village and Monarto (Australia’s largest open range zoo). You can also go diving, snorkelling or mountain biking.

Adelaide has a thriving live music scene and an abundance of music, food, wine and art festivals, all year round, such as Womad, the Adelaide Festival, Adelaide Fringe etc

Adelaide is the gateway to many amazing experiences such as the Great Ocean Road, Kangaroo Island, Yorke and Eyre Peninsulas, Flinders Ranges, The Nullarbor and the desert regions which of course include Uluru, Kata Tjuta and Kings Canyon. Whether you go by car, bus, train, plane or boat, Adelaide is perfectly placed to send you in any direction… at an affordable cost.

Drink local wines and brews, eat great local produce, hug a koala, spot a whale, dive with white pointers…or just chill. Stay a few days… or stay forever!

Adelaide and its regions have it all – just ask!!
