Fringed by long-reaching picturesque beaches to the west and lush hills to the east, Adelaide is the essence of small city charm. The city centre is easily navigable and just over 1-mile square, meaning the major sites such as the Adelaide Oval, South Australian Museum, and the Botanical Gardens, as well as the finest restaurants and hottest bars are within easy walking distance.
The unique cultural-heritage of Adelaide gives the city a look and feel unlike any other Australian capital city, and the close proximity to tourist favourites such as the Barossa Valley and Kangaroo Island make this a popular addition to an Australian journey.
With an unavoidable passion for fine wine and exceptional food, unique architecture and easy access to some of the most iconic Australian destinations, Adelaide is understated and unassuming in beauty and character, but an absolute must.
