If you are looking for something different from Melbourne and Sydney try exploring the exciting city of Adelaide, offering a world of interesting things to do & giving you a different taste of Australia.


Drink and Dine in Adelaide's Laneway Bars

There is drinks aplenty in Adelaide and if you are a fan of alcoholic beverages you would love the variety of flavours that are offered here. All you need to do is take a stroll through the little laneways that crisscross through Adelaide city and drop into one of the many bars which once were warehouses and shops in the streets of Adelaide. Experience the world of flavours waiting to tantalize the taste-buds and enjoy just the right kick to get yourself energized. Prepare to be served everything from tapas to Serbian cuisine and rest assured you would fall in love with what is on offer for your taste buds. To experience more of the dining & wining scene in Adelaide, head over to the Peel-Leigh Street precinct, where you can get started with a glass of wine at Clever Little Tailor before dropping in BarBushka for a cocktail. While you are at it don't miss the popular 'Poof'; the famous buzzing little joint in the area.


Sample Fresh Produce at Adelaide's Central Market

Adelaide's market scene is inviting and the produce in particular makes you want to take it all home and whip up your favourite wonders with whatever you can get your hands on. South Australia has a rich bounty of products that range from hormone-free meats, artisan cheeses, smoked meats and seafood. For the best dose of it all drop by the Central Market where you can grab a bite in between shopping to your heart's content. You could also try out the Mark Gleeson's early morning tour, where you get a chance to sample the produce and chat to the people behind the market stalls.


Take a Walk through Historic Port Adelaide

There is plenty of history etched in Adelaide and a walk through the Discover Port will take you to a number of 19th-century buildings, classic Australian pubs and atmospheric old wharves. To learn more about the surroundings get yourself a self-guided walking map from the tourist office. You could also make your excursion slightly more fun by kayaking along Port River and dropping into the Maritime Museum on Lipson Street.


Stroll the Galleries of Elegant North Terrace

North Terrance happens to be the most elegant boulevard in all of Adelaide. Adorned with a number of cultural institutions this exciting road hosts the Art Gallery of South Australia, the South Australian Museum and The University of Adelaide. Located in close proximity to Oaks Embassy, one of the well known serviced apartments Adelaide has to offer, you can simply put a walk here when you have a little time in hand.


Go Shopping in The East End

Finally shop to your heart's content. Like the rest of Australia, Adelaide does not fall short on shopping opportunities and places like Rundle Street, Bimbo and Sooki is proof of this fact.
