Adelaide is a city bursting with excitement. Known for its culinary scene with bold flavors and prepared with fresh produce, myriad of festivals and events held year round, abundance of cultural experiences, blissful beaches, and access to the rolling hills of the wine region, you can be sure there are tons of things to do in Adelaide.

Although being a metropolitan city, it boasts a laid-back atmosphere and has a small community charm that you won’t find in many other cities in Australia.

Its central position also makes it ideal for exploring more of the South Australia region, from scenic drives along the Great Ocean Road to hopping over the ocean to Kangaroo Island.
