Discover

Adelaide & Beyond

Positioned between the rolling hills and the Gulf of St Vincent, the laid-back city of Adelaide offers visitors relaxed elegance and a taste of the high life in South Australia. With a long-established reputation as a wine and food paradise, Adelaide has more recently cultivated a range of festivals and events such as the Santos Down Under Tour bike race. It also possesses a diverse bar scene to justify its position as Australia’s lifestyle capital.

Visitors to Adelaide can explore the informative libraries and museums of North Terrace, pick up some bargains at the Adelaide Central Markets, or simple enjoy the numerous green spaces that populate the city.

A little further afield, quaint villages can be discovered in the historic German area of Hahndorf, whilst eco-adventures can also be experienced in the attractive environs of Adelaide. Furthermore, the winery tours of Clare Valley and Barossa present a golden opportunity to sample South Australia’s world famous vintages, whilst Glenelg offers the unforgettable experience of swimming with dolphins.
