Adelaide is a vibrant city full of exceptional experiences

Set beside a river, surrounded by parklands and buzzing with life, this is a capital city that is clever, cultured and cool. Its events calendar is packed with everything from award-winning sport to world-class art, its enormous range of restaurants and cafes is famous, its cultural attractions are many and varied, and it’s known as the ’20 minute city’ because everything is so close and easy to get to. Sandy white beaches can be found just 20-minutes’ drive west of the CBD, while the beautiful Adelaide Hills (with vast expanses of untouched bush land) are 20-minutes’ drive to the east.

South Australia is renowned throughout the world for its award-winning wine. Adelaide is the gateway to famous wine regions such as Barossa, Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills and McLaren Vale. Visit Penfolds Magill Estate, nestled in the foothills of Adelaide and only 15 minutes from the centre of the city. The winery is the spiritual home of Penfolds and the birthplace of Australia's most iconic wine, Grange.

Seriously good coffee and food are never far away – the city boasts several of the best café strips in Australia and long, lazy café brunches are part and parcel of the Adelaide lifestyle. You will also find plenty of pubs and a huge range of top restaurants without extravagant price tags. The Adelaide Central Markets on Gouger Street are the true heart of this food and wine obsessed city, offering fresh produce and gourmet food from many different cultures coupled with plenty of atmosphere. Mingle with thousands of shoppers in the southern hemisphere’s largest undercover produce market.
