4 17 Reviews | Add your review

Adelaide is a multicultural city that’s deservedly proud of its cultural and arts scene, top-notch wine and food, and vibrant calendar of annual festive events. With the River Torrens running through the city center, plus the tree-lined streets, green squares, lovely architecture, and surrounding parklands, the scene is set in Adelaide for a relaxed, sophisticated, and entertaining city experience.

Day 1: Festival City
Adelaide’s festive center is the riverfront Adelaide Festival Centre, hosting the alternative fun of the February Fringe Festival and the classic concerts of the March arts festival. To get an idea of the city's riverside layout, take a morning sightseeing tour of the fine buildings lining lovely North Terrace. In March, the nearby Botanic Gardens provide the venue for music from near and far during the WOMADelaide world music festival. If you’re a sports fan, make the pilgrimage to catch a game of cricket at the pretty Adelaide Oval, with its Don Bradman cricketing collection.

Day 2: Foodie's Favorite
Modern Australian cuisine combines fine local produce and French culinary techniques, with particularly spectacular results in Adelaide. To see how much the locals love their food, visit the lively Adelaide Central Market to browse artisan cheeses, bakery goods, seafood, and seasonal produce. Chinatown is another good source of appetite-arousing aromas, with cheap and cheerful cafes as well as fine dining establishments. Nearby Gouger Street is a popular foodie locale, with standout Italian pizzerias and cafes.

Day 3: Further Afield
The source of all that food lovers' fresh produce is right on Adelaide’s doorstep, including award-winning wines from the Barossa Valley and Coonawarra regions. Wildlife lovers head south to Kangaroo Island, where seals, wallabies and sea lions frolic, and koalas graze on gum leaves. The mountain landscapes and villages have a German flavor in pretty Hahndorf, and the Fleurieu Peninsula combines seaside towns, riverboat history and McLaren Vale vineyards.
