Top areas in Adelaide
From beaches and vineyards to art festivals and sports events, the South Australian capital of Adelaide is the complete package. Visitors to the city can arrive through the Adelaide Airport with regular connections throughout Australia, plus a couple of direct international flights.
Adelaide’s city center has a very friendly layout with wide streets and plenty of green spaces. A few Gothic cathedrals only add to the bold atmosphere. The city center is a popular area not just for its location, but for its cosmopolitan atmosphere and low levels of traffic congestion.
Being a coastal city, beach options are available and best experienced in Glenelg. This area is popular, even after dark, and can be easily reached via a tram from the city center. The region’s climate not only adds to the beach appeal, but it also helps create picturesque landscapes that are highlighted by vineyards offering wine-tasting tours. The wine that comes from the area is renowned throughout the world, and the famous Barossa Valley is reachable from Adelaide. Quiet picnics and bushwalks offer leisure pursuits that are common pastimes for travelers and locals alike.
