Adelaide is the capital city of South Australia and the fifth largest city of Australia. With an estimated population of 1.29 million it combines exceptional food and wine with art, shopping, culture and fantastic weather.
There are rolling hills to the east and beaches to the west. The airport is only seven kilometres from the CBD. The Adelaide Hills and major beaches are less than half an hour away by car. You can even take a tram from the CBD to Glenelg Beach.
In March there’s the Adelaide Festival, Adelaide Fringe Festival and WOMADelaide. Later in the year Santos Tour Down Under and Clipsal 500 Adelaide V8 car race.
The state is also home to the biggest vineyards in the country – Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, The Riverland, Limestone Coast and the Adelaide Hills. The food on offer is a cultural mix that guarantees sensational food choices. Rundle Street in Adelaide’s east end includes a mix of historic pubs and family-run cafes and restaurants. Dine alfresco, morning, noon and night. Five minutes away, Norwood Parade is famously European influenced while Gouger Street, which is close to Chinatown and the Adelaide Central Market is crammed with Asian restaurants.
South Australia is also the driest state in the driest continent but when features of its Outback like Lake Eyre come to life it’s a treat and only just a 2 hour flight.
