Adelaide might be known as the “city of churches”, but it offers so much more than a steeple-speckled landscape.
Fringed by parklands and brought to life by a rich music and arts scene, its lively atmosphere is marked with an exceptional number of cultural events and celebrated with world-class wines. Naturally, a day trip to the Barossa Valley to visit the area’s award winning wineries is a must.
For families and beachcombers, the must-see destination is Kangaroo Island. It’s a short bus and ferry ride from Adelaide, though it feels miles away. The island boasts a unique coastal landscape of native birds, sea lions, penguins and rock formations. Stick around for the sunset. You won’t regret it.
When to visit the wildlife on Kangaroo Island, the wineries in Adelaide Hills and more.
Surrounded by a handful of wine regions, pristine beaches and within easy reach of some of Australia's most picturesque natural wonders, there's plenty to do within Adelaide's CBD with out.
Take in the best of Adelaide's food and wine scene on a food tour, explore the city's galleries and museums or hit the beach at Glenelg.
Adelaide Oval is on War Memorial Drive in the Parklands between North Adelaide and the city centre.
The famed stadium is used mostly for cricket and AFL but it also plays host to other events such as rugby league, rugby union, soccer and concerts.

Although talks are in the pipeline, Adelaide does not have an aquarium.
However, visitors looking to get up close with sea creatures aren't completely out of luck. There are some interesting aquarium displays to be enjoyed at Adelaide Zoo. Here you can visit penguins, sea lions and alligators.
You'll find these east of the city centre and depending on where you're going, public transport from the city is available. However, if you're planning on visiting vineyards or making multiple stops, it may be easiest with your own transportation.
The picturesque Adelaide Hills are part of the Mount Lofty Ranges and a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. Tagged "The Land of the Long Lunch", it's the ideal place to indulge in some Aussie-cultivated cuisine.
Stretching only about 3km across, Adelaide's city centre is compact and packs in attractions like Rundle Mall, the South Australian Museum and the Art Gallery of South Australia into it's borders. If you're staying central, most of the CBD's attractions should be no more than a 20-30-minute walk.
