Once known as the ‘city of churches’, Adelaide cast off its conservative veneer many years ago. These days it’s a multicultural city that’s deservedly proud of its cultural and arts scene, fabulous opportunities for great wine and food, and vibrant calendar of annual festive events. The River Torrens runs through Adelaide’s city center, and the wide tree-lined streets, green squares, lovely architecture and surrounding parklands set the scene 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 Adelaide’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 Asian fine dining restaurants. 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.
