Things to do in Adelaide
Festivals, wildlife and wine. This is Adelaide.
Adelaide has been dubbed the City of Festivals, the City of Churches, and with the Barossa Valley wineries just a day-trip away, you could be forgiven for thinking Adelaide is the city of wine.
Often the starting or finishing point for a Great Ocean Road tour, there is so much more to Adelaide than meets the eye. With a thriving foodie scene, underground laneway bars, and regular cultural events, it’s worth staying for a few days to soak up the city’s vibe.
