Adelaide is the capital and largest city in the state of South Australia, with a population of 1.3 million. The weather in Adelaide isn’t as extreme as in other parts of Australia, and an ocean breeze generally makes warm summer days more bearable.
This city has historic architecture, an amazing botanic garden and great outdoor markets. Get your shopping thrills in the massive Central Market, get a proper introduction to the city through a cruise on the Torrens River, or check out the beach and jetty at Glenelg.
From Adelaide, you can also head for a 2-day Kangaroo Island tour for an appointment with Australia’s most iconic inhabitants, to hike through native bushes and see spectacular wildlife!
Adelaide is an excellent starting point to explore the south of Australia, and beloved travel targets such as the Barossa Valley and Port Lincoln are within reach. You can experience the wine culture and have a sample of some of Australia’s most excellent wines during the full day wine tour of the Barossa Valley from Adelaide. Another fun way to indulge in local produce and wines is the day tour of the Adelaide Hills and Hahndorf Hideaway.
But Adelaide and its surrounding area are not only about grape booze! A more adventurous type of traveller will feel at home in Port Lincoln, where you can get close encounters with some astonishing animals. Dive in the deep during a hair-raising shark cage dive with great whites, or look for more cute faces under the sea surfaces when you swim with sea lions at Port Lincoln.
