Vibrant and sophisticated, this jewel on the south coast offers adventure and fun.

I absolutely love Adelaide. It’s one of my favourite cities in Australia. It’s foodie heaven with fabulous coffee shops and the Central Markets are a must do. Incredible, fresh produce and such variety. Reminds me of the markets in Europe. It’s not called “Radelaide “ for nothing, it’s very arty and quirky. Love Rundle Mall. Some beautiful architecture to be seen from brick houses, to gorgeous churches and lovely arcades in the city. Walking along The Torrens is very relaxing . A trip to Hahndorf and Stirling in the hills is also very worthwhile. For me, Adelaide is WAY better for coffee and culture than Melbourne.

The ideally planned city of Adelaide is laid out in a grid design and surrounded by green space. The north of the city has pretty boulevards of jacaranda trees, which become a mass of purple flowers in springtime. Chinatown is a cheap place to eat in the city, and Rundle Mall the classic place to shop. There’s plenty to do in Adelaide, given its outstanding museums, historic gaol, zoo, botanical gardens and beach suburb Glenelg.
