Churches galore … but there’s so much more.
Nestled between the hills and the ocean, the City of Churches is still renowned in some stuffy circles for just having heaps and heaps of lovely spiritual buildings. And beautiful architecture should certainly be clapped-clapped at, but ask your local crow eater and they’ll probably point out a few more things that makes Adelaide a fairly awesome place to live/visit – like the pumping live music scene, great outdoorsy experiences, hip bars and crazy festivals. Bring it!
Get out and about
With a Mediterranean climate to brag about, Adelaide’s beaches are the go-to sunning spot when the mercury hits the high points. Tram it to nearby Glenelg, fish off the jetty at Brighton or grab some vintage fish ‘n’ chips at Semaphore. If you’re a wax head desperate for a wave, mosey on over to Moana (or ‘Mowies’ to the locals), and if you’re up for an ‘au naturel’ experience, grab those … well, just sunscreen really, and check out Maslin Beach.
Keen outdoors freaks should check out the Deep Creek Conservation Park (a two-hour drive from Adelaide) for its stunning coastline and a peek at some Western grey kangaroos, take a day-trip drive to the Adelaide Hills for a mountain bike, or join some oldies for a cruise of the Murray River. Amazing scenery included.
Stuff your face
Adelaide’s laneways are constantly being transformed by their pokey little bars and hole-in-the-wall eateries. Here you can sample an espresso martini pre-din-dins, before gorging on a seafood smorgasbord in Chinatown or smashing a tasty tapas plate at the hip ‘n’ happening Peel-Leigh precinct. Love your beer? South Australia’s most famous brewery (Coopers) also offers tours and a tasting or two of its best ales and lagers.
For a bit more of a hippy-downtown experience, the Adelaide Central Market will satisfy your cravings for fancy cheeses, organic delights and freshly-caught seafood. You can even do a tour here where you’ll meet local producers and enjoy generous taste tests. Cause there’s nothing better than free food is there?
Smash the credit card
Rundle Mall … evs (although it DOES have over 700 retail stores, three department stores and 15 arcades). But for a car-boot-full of Australian designer pieces, get along to Adelaide’s East End or The Parade in Norwood, which is also a great spot for a caffeine hit. King William Road is ideal for locally made clothes, jewellery and accessories and Glenelg a great spot for unique home wares and funky fashion.
An outlet fiend? Then there’s no better destination than Harbour Town. A 15-minute drive west of the city, it’s great for brand bargains including on sportswear to ramp up your regime.
Up the fun factor
Love your furry and feathered friends? Cuddle a koala at Gorge Wildlife Park, meet Wang Wang the Giant Panda at the Adelaide Zoo or head to the Monarto Zoo for more exotic beasts like white rhinos, chimps and cheetahs.
Adelaide also loves a good festival frenzy and throughout the year hosts the Adelaide Festival, the Adelaide Fringe, WOMADelaide and the Royal Adelaide Show. Or get down and dirty among a tribe of loyal AFL fans and catch a game at the iconic Adelaide Oval.
Hit the road
If you’ve got wheels and a hyper sense of adventure, take a drive to the Flinders Ranges for a camel trekking tour, head west to the Eyre Peninsula for an unforgettable seafood blowout, or make your way south to the Fleurieu Peninsula, which offers great surf and swim beaches, stunning nature trails and wildlife galore including penguins and Southern right whales.
Got a bit of spare cash to chuck around? Kangaroo Island is the third-largest island off the Australian coastline and has heaps of stuff to do, including sailing, scuba diving and fishing. And if you’ve got a soft spot for marine life, you might even spot a fur seal or two on your seaside adventures.
