Australia's wine capital, Adelaide is a beautiful city nestled between the rolling Adelaide hills and pristine sandy beaches. Petite yet perfectly designed, Adelaide crams a lot of excitement into an incredibly small space. Surrounded by State Heritage listed parklands, the city is spread over just over 700 square kilometres and has a diverse cultural mix that makes it a truly unique city. While you're on the east coast, stay in one of two IHG Adelaide hotels, and make the most of your once-in-a-lifetime trip to Australia.
The first freely settled colony in Australia, Adelaide is extremely proud of its cultural heritage. As the exporters of Australia's first wine, the city is host to the National Wine Centre of Australia, where visitors can learn about the winemaking process, take an interactive wine discovery tour, and taste a bold Barossa Shiraz or a fresh Clare Valley Riesling.
If wine isn't your thing, why not stroll along North Terrace, a cultural boulevard that takes in some of Adelaide's most impressive buildings. From the Adelaide University to The South Australian Museum, the Art Gallery of South Australia to the State Library, explore the city's history at a pace you can enjoy. Or, for a spot of shopping, make your way to the Adelaide Central Market, where you can peruse stalls full to bursting with fresh produce—and free samples!
For those bringing families, there's plenty of choice, too. The Adelaide Zoo is home to two Giant Pandas, the only pair in the Southern Hemisphere. Or, for a more hands-on day out, cuddle a koala or feed a kangaroo at Cleland Wildlife Park.
Wherever you decide to explore, at the end of the day, head back to one of our hotels in Adelaide and relax in one of our comfortable rooms. Book your stay with IHG today, and start planning a fantastic vacation.
