Adelaide Travel Guide

Things to do in Adelaide

Adelaide is underrated as a tourist destination but in truth there is much for holiday makers to see and do here. Choose between anything from strolling around the city, admiring the architecture and boutique shopping in the suburbs to soaking up the sun on the beautiful sandy beaches or enjoying Adelaide''s nightlife, dining and art scene.

Start off in the historic beachside suburb of Glenelg for a stroll along the pier with an ice-cream in hand before heading up into the Adelaide Hills to Mt Lofty Summit where breathtaking views over the city can be enjoyed - the perfect place for those travel photos. Sports fan head to the Oval for a local or international cricket match; culture vultures will love the Art Gallery of South Australia on North Terrace, where more than 35,000 pieces can be viewed; and history buffs will be captivated by the Migration Museum''s insight into the migration of British prisoners to Australia in the 1700s.

Nature and animal lovers should head out of the city to visit Belair National Park for some fantastic trails, bushwalks or even just to hang out and have a picnic on the grass, while visitors can get up close and personal with koalas, kangaroos and wallabies at the Cleland Conservation Park. The Adelaide Botanical Gardens are a great place to relax and unwind under the shade of a tree and West beach is perfect for family walks and swimming. After a long hard day of sightseeing, what could round it off better than a tour of the Coopers Brewery for a good old-fashioned, family-brewed, ice cold beer.
