    SOUTH AUSTRALIA: Let Adelaide live up to its “Radelaide” nickname with these fun and fab ideas for seven short breaks. We guarantee this cosmopolitant coastal capital and surrounds will surprise you!  

    For Foodies...

    Start in the heart of the city with a stay at the gorgeous Adina Apartment Hotel Adelaide Treasury and a sneak peek through the Adelaide Central Market with Food Tours Australia. Walk through the 150-year-old fresh produce market, learn its history and taste all sorts from smelly cheeses, seasonal fruits, smallgoods and bush tucker … green ants are a “citrusy” must. 

    For an Eco-friendly Fix...

    Let Eco Caddy Tour push you around … the back streets, that is, from the West End laneways with some of Adelaide’s best restaurants, to the funky East End bars and designer shops. You relax while they pedal and show off the history, architecture, street art … and find the best coffee stops. 

    For Sports Nuts and Adrenaline Junkies...

    What’s better than visiting an iconic sports field? Conquering it! Strap on a harness and climb Adelaide Oval - up and over the famous arches, into the stands and over the field … 50m above the players. 

    For Night Owls... 

    As the sun sets, strap in for some night-time revelry with the Adelaide Bar Boys. Whether you’re into cocktails, gin, whiskey or wine, Nathan and Branden have ways to whet your whistle. 

    For Fun…

    Lean forward to go ahead, rest back on your heels to stop and keep your knees bent. That’s all you need to know for a Segway Sensation tour of the Riverbank Precinct along the River Torrens to Memorial Drive Tennis Club and Adelaide Oval, over the footbridge, past the Adelaide Festival Centre and Convention Centre with commentary along the way. 

    For Wine Lovers…

    With four major wine regions within an hour of Adelaide, there’s a region (and a riesling or shiraz, cab sav, pinot noir, sav blanc … you get the picture) for everyone. Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills and Clare Valley are a short drive or wine tour away. Let Barossa Valley Boutique Wine Tours, Cellar Door Tours and GetawaysSA drive while you taste. For those heading to the Fleurieu Peninsula, make sure you catch the Salvador Dali Sculpture Exhibition (it runs from now until 31 March 2021) at the d'Arenberg Cube.

    For Festive Types… 

    Adelaide’s festival season is dubbed Mad March but the fun extends way beyond one month. If you need an “excuse” to visit, here are the major events for the next year (so long as Coronavirus doesn’t interfere):

    January – Santos Tour Down Under and Crush Festival; February – Laneway Festival and Adelaide Fringe; March – Womadelaide, Adelaide Festival and Superloop 500; April – Tasting Australia; May - Clare Valley Gourmet Weekend; June – Cabaret Festival and McLaren Vale Sea and Vines; July – Adelaide Beer and BBQ Festival, Winter Reds; August – SALA; November – OzAsia and the Christmas Pageant.
