Adelaide is the capital of dynamic culture, exotic flavours and exciting events. Known as Australia's "festival state", this is a great place to catch live music. Adelaide has an ever-growing bar and restaurant scene and specialises in sharing world-class music and art. From a once slow-paced community to a performing arts hot spot, this capital is bursting with charm.
With South Australia's reputation as the "Great Wine Capital of the World", Adelaide is at its heart and includes access to areas of Australia's most celebrated wine country. Adelaide Central Market is a great place to find local treasures and sample the best produce of this amazing region.
To experience nature's impressive scenery, take a day trip to the Adelaide Hills for breathtaking views and stunning walks. Here you can also take the opportunity to cuddle a koala at the Cleland Wildlife Park or visit Glenelg, one of the capital's most popular beaches. At Glenlg, you can head out sailing on the water, relax on the sand or even swim with local dolphins.
The summer season, from February to March, is a great time to visit Adelaide. This season brings the beach holiday weather and a large number of events take place like the Adelaide Fringe Festival. Kangaroo Island, located just off the coast of Adelaide, transforms from gold tones to a rich green during the summer season.
Adelaide is a fantastic place to visit year round. In winter (April to January), you can expect temperatures between 8° to 15°. A more pleasant temperature for sightseeing or exploring the nearby National Parks.
Named as the Great Wine Capital of the World, South Australia is known for its celebrated culinary expertise. Escape to the Adelaide Hills and enjoy your choice of fine dining in premier restaurants. Complete your meal with a glass of boutique wine surrounded by beautiful vineyards.
You will find world-class, exclusive and boutique dining options. Taste the country's ever-popular "fusion" cuisine on most menus, including fresh produce for flavoursome seafood and meat dishes. There are many multicultural flavours that influence Adelaide's gourmet restaurants.
