When in Adelaide

The city of Adelaide is one of Australia's most enjoyable locations!

Located inside the confines of a temperate Mediterranean climate, Adelaide is a 'must-experience' travel location. Within the heart of this modern cosmopolitan delight are many fine hotels offering everything the discerning traveller may require.

The center of Adelaide city is highly regarded for its eclectic selections of specialty foods, wines, numerous festivals, casino and shopping. Celebrations occur frequently at the Festival Centre with a variety of other activities including the “Fringe Festival” and “Womadelaide” close by.

A stroll by the scenic River Torrens might include some browsing in the new and exciting Riverbank Promenade where a variety of specialty and well-known shops offer many opportunities to tease and satisfy your palate.

Additionally, nearby is the Adelaide Casino with its beautiful architecture and fine furnishings throughout its lobby and halls. The Adelaide Convention Centre, located next to the Riverbank Promenade, is yet another attraction famous for its design, function, and accoutrements.

In the Botanical Gardens of Adelaide you are sure to breathe in the experience of gorgeous plants, flora and fauna. You will also gain a new fondness for botanicals from the educational information provided at the gardens.

The Art Gallery of South Australia offers and ever-changing collection of artwork from local, regional, national and internationally famous and premiere artists.

If you have not seen or had enough variety of shopping experiences with all of the above, a visit to the Adelaide Central Market may be just what you need! Here, you will find pleasing culinary delights ranging from cheeses to sweets, baked goods, sea foods, produce and more. I would suggest you go on an empty stomach since the array of edibles may prove too much for one who has no room left to sample and taste.

Beyond the city but still within easy reach are a number of attractions ranging from the stunning Barossa Valley with its famous wines, the towns of Victor Harbor and Port Elliot for stunning coast line and Hahndorf with its authentic German Heritage and charm.
