Adelaide is bursting with culture, flavours, events and entertainment. With a burgeoning small-bar scene, world-class art and music, and a festival calendar to rival that of any other Australian city, Adelaide is a destination worth discovering. Explore the laneways of Adelaide Central Market, dine at award-winning restaurants and take in the stunning natural beauty that this hidden gem has to offer.
Adelaide is the official Great Wine Capital of Australia. The world-renowned wine regions of McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley, Clare Valley and Coonawarra are just a short drive from the city. Soak up the atmosphere with wine tastings, lazy long lunches and bucket list cellar door experiences.
The towns of the Adelaide Hills are home to some of South Australia’s best food, wine and scenery. Perhaps the most well known, and less than 30-minutes from the city, is Australia’s oldest surviving German settlement of Hahndorf. A heritage listed town, Hahndorf’s steep history and character lends itself to a picturesque and interesting village to discover. Stroll down the iconic main street and explore heritage German buildings, bakeries, pubs and cafes that line the bustling leafy street. Enjoy a traditional German feast at the Hahndorf Inn and wander through beautiful galleries and shops offering everything from traditional sweets and local produce to indigenous artwork and German cuckoo clocks.
A two hour drive from the city is the beauty of Kangaroo Island. With its raw and rugged coastline, impeccably clear waters and natural wonders, Kangaroo Island is known as nature’s playground. Follow the road less travelled and discover unique wildlife, mouth-watering food and wine, breath taking scenery and a laid-back lifestyle.
