A cosmopolitan capital & the gateway to wine country
Adelaide is the bustling capital of South Australia, a cultural hub that's right on the doorstep of some amazing attractions. Adelaide is known for its foodie experiences, boasting a lively restaurant and small bar scene that is well worth exploring. Nearby Glenelg and Brighton are great places to take the kids on a day trip, while culture vultures will enjoy exploring all the galleries and museums around the city. Time your visit to coincide with WOMADelaide and you'll be in for a treat - the four-day music, art and dance festival is one of the city's top attractions.
You can use Adelaide as a base to explore South Australia's wine country, with the renowned Barossa Valley just under an hour's drive from the city. Meet local winemakers and enjoy tastings at some of the 80 cellar doors in this internationally-acclaimed wine region. Closer to the city is the Adelaide Hills wine region, and on Kangaroo Island you can enjoy Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot blends while sampling the delicious local food.
