Adelaide Vacation Travel Guide

Adelaide – One of Australia’s most striking cities. The South Australian capital has the perfect combination of big-city living and outdoor beauty. Check out the best sights in Adelaide, here.

Visit the South Australian Museum, where you can learn about the region’s history—both European and the cultures that predated them. Get outside and see some of the city’s natural charms. Adelaide tours often include the Adelaide Botanic Gardens.

Barossa Valley is about 50 miles northeast of Adelaide. This is one of Australia’s oldest winemaking regions, and you can sample one of its legendary Rieslings. Pick up some groceries at one of the Barossa markets, purchase a bottle of wine at one of the vineyards, and pick a spot in this valley for the perfect picnic.

  1. Great place to stay! Very green, very sunny and with a mild weather this is an extremely livable. The food and the wine are world class! The sporting scene and the theatre life is also excellent.

  2. We drove from nsw to adelaide the other day. Im from adelaide. As we drove in on the a32 my friend says we must be near the beach with all those seagulls? Umm no. Thats all from the Wingfield rubbish tip. Its actually a pretty awful look driving in past all that factory and rubbish. I lived in adl for 35yrs and can't say i miss the place.

  3. I just came back from Adelaide yesterday, it was AMAZING! Yes, it's true that Adelaide might be boring for those party and night animals, but it's definitely a lovely city surrounded by the nature, you can easily find parks around it. Anyway I'll definitely visit Adelaide again very soon xx love from Melbourne

  4. I have returned from Australia after 6 months spent in Adelaide. I lived in UK for 11 years and thought it would be nice to settle in Oz, have a nice house , good weather close to the ocean etc. So after 3 years I got state sponsored visa and had to go to Adelaide (I wanted to go to Brisbane initially). Well, I lasted 6 months lol. I worked there, bought 2 cars (for me and my wife), rented a newly built house, bought furniture and did everything in reverse after couple of months time. In short, the reasons were: lack of culture, weird people – a lot mentally ill, depressed , and no chance to have any conversation, empty streets even though I was 5km from city centre, driving , driving and driving.. no motorways, speed limits 60kmh, long time to get to work, traffic, chinese everywhere, no mot for cars, bad roads, pollution, expensive cars, everything expensive, sun burns your skin even when 20C, loud birds as crazy as people lol , low quality restaurants – couldn't find any decent curry or thai as in UK, lack of fashion, radio played only songs from 70s, town was stuck in 70-80s, old buildings, old people everywhere, all young ones left to look for jobs interstate. Need to go to offices in person to do most of the jobs instead of doing it online, for example car registration. Good points – fresh tasty fruit . I wouldn't consider this place even for retirement, too boring. This is purely about Adelaide, I haven't visited anywhere else.

  5. Australia is the most exquisite country, I really fascinated to live and work in Aussizz. Moreover, they are protecting nature in incredible ways also have many alluring tall buildings.

  6. I suggest coming here in our summer season and take your kids on a strawberry picking at the beerenburg strawberry farm near harndorf in the Adelaide hills or Melba's Chocolate Factory. During winter we'll Adelaide has library's museums and art galleries to explore but it's still kinda boring in winter the city is so focus on its summer places not much to do in winter.

  7. I never knew Adelaïde was that beautiful. I was afraid to leave France and its European architecture but I guess a city like Adelaïde is a perfect blend of traditionnal and modern buildings so I would feel really well there. Maybe someday, if my husband agrees, we will go for good :)
