Adelaide is a thriving cultural hot spot on the southern coast where delectable wines, festivals, and miles of warm beachfront combine for the ideal slice of relaxation and ease. Come experience laid back city life, with a twist—our Adelaide hotels will show you the way.
Adelaide’s reputation as one of the world’s most liveable cities wells from its unique city grid, masterminded by Colonel Light in the 19th century. Get acquainted with a walking tour in Adelaide’s compact downtown, surrounded by parkland. After taking in the cultural history and cosmopolitan flair of North Terrace Street, dive into south Australia’s history—human and otherwise—at the South Australian Museum, where a four-story squid fossil and the largest collection of Aboriginal artifacts in the world compete for your attention. From there, wave at the only two giant pandas in the Southern hemisphere at the Adelaide Zoo before heading next door to the Adelaide Botanic Gardens, one of many peaceful natural retreats in the city.
When you’re ready for some beachy relaxation, treat yourself to a snack in one of the eclectic beachside cafes of Brighton Beach, or peer at the city from another angle when you take on one of the bordering cliffside trails. Adventure into southern Australia’s impressive array of vintages with a tour of the National Wine Centre of Australia. Good news: that same Shiraz can be uncorked at one of the many restaurants lining Gouger or Rundle Streets as you dine on seafood and local produce. Load up your basket with gourmet goodies at the Adelaide Central Market or give the Rundle Mall a chance to impress you with its breezy retail arcades. The fun-loving city of Adelaide never sleeps, and neither will you if you have tickets for the cricket match on the Adelaide Oval or a show at the dazzling Tandanya National Aboriginal Cultural Institute.
