Haven’t visited Adelaide yet? The time is now, as a fantastic destination awaits. Small in size but big in personality, this pretty city sits snugly between some of Australia’s most beautiful beaches (including ones where you can swim with dolphins), top wine regions (including the Barossa Valley and the Adelaide Hills for starters) and memorable nature experiences, such as wildlife-lovers’ favourites Kangaroo Island and the Eyre Peninsula.
But you don’t need to leave town to enjoy the best of Adelaide – its city centre is easy to navigate and packed with delights, including a lively laneway scene offering some of Australia’s best restaurants and bars, while its waterfront suburbs offer beaches, boutiques and gorgeous heritage buildings. Which neighbourhood will be your favourite?
