Adelaide, South Australia – City Trip

Written by sailor2512 on January 18th, 2011

I recently spent a week in Adelaide. There is so much to do that I actually ran out of time in the end! Of course there is the city centre with its endless variety of excellent restaurants, the central market with food from all over the world, and the pedestrian zone with all the nice shops and cafés. It’s easy to get around with a free bus circling the city. There are lots of art galleries and museums such as the  South Australian Museum with its first class Aborigine exhibition. From the shopping mall you can wander past colonial buildings and the University to the Auckland Zoo where you can see the only panda bears in the Southern Hemisphere! The zoo alone is a place to spend a whole day, really. And right next to it you have the huge Botanical Gardens where you can watch more parrots than out in the countryside!

If you are interested in wine there is the Barossa Valley and the Clare Valley with all its . Everwhere beautiful wine tastings are offered, and then there is the German Hahndorf and all the history around it. The food at the wine tastings was superb by the way! Just amazing.

I stayed at the Crowne Plaza right in the City Centre. Beautiful rooms and one of the best breakfast buffets I have ever seen! Good service, too. For a cheaper option I would recommend the Majestic Roof Gardens or the Oaks Precinct.

If you have more time you could fly or drive to Kangaroo Island – definitely worth 2 or 3 days!
