Famed for its festival scene, Adelaide has historic buildings, wide avenues, and a diverse cultural makeup. All of which are surrounded by expansive parklands, with numerous wine regions on the doorstep.

Adelaide’s grid like-streets are easily explored on foot, or by bicycle, and are surrounded by open space – the now State Heritage Listed parklands. Calm and gracious, the city combines the old world and contemporary society, with a celebrated small bar, cafe and restaurant scene, and year round festivals – from WOMADelaide to the Santos Tour Down Under car race. Adelaide also boasts a vibrant art scene with a plethora of galleries. 

The Adelaide Hills are home to national parks and a major wine-producing region, with vineyards and picturesque villages waiting to be discovered. The Adelaide International Bird Sanctuary is to the north and protects 60 kilometres of coastline on the Gulf St Vincent. For a chance to relax away from the city, nearby beaches are Glenelg, or Henley and Grange. Alternatively, for a–days–gone–by feel, visit Semaphore, with its esplanade, fish and chip shops and safe swimming beach.
