5 Reasons to Visit Adelaide on a City Getaway - For the Ultimate City Escape!

If you are looking for a city break, then you must know Adelaide is fast becoming Australia's popular city getaway. Read on why Adelaide is the perfect place to head over to.



Cities like Sydney in Australia has a wow factor that grabs the attention of many. Adelaide, on the other hand, has a more gentle and soft approach with incredible beauty that surrounds the periphery, with rolling hills on the east and pristine beaches on the west co-existing in perfect harmony. On top of that, it has many green spaces, parks, gardens, blue skies and luxurious boulevards. Unlike cities like Melbourne and Sydney, Adelaide gives you room to breathe. Everything you will need is only a mere 15 minutes away and the city has a population of around 1 million only. Besides, if you are looking for the best hotel in Adelaide located close to most tourist attractions, you can check out properties like Avani Adelaide Residences.


Food Capital

Head over to the Adelaide Central market which is around 145-years old. Just an hour here will convince you that this is the food capital of the country. There are more than 80 caf├ęs, restaurant and stalls which all showcase the fresh produce. You will be able to taste sweet chocolate, watch cheese getting made, entertain yourself with Italian coffee, and by fresh local produce from the greengrocers. It is absolutely incredible and an experience completely worth travelling to Adelaide for.


Wine Capital

Australia is popular for its wineries located all around. Did you know that even Adelaide has its fair share of wineries and you can have the most exquisite experience here? You will be able to find some of the most recognised brands in these parts. You can head over to Adelaide Hills, Clare Valley, McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley all located a quick drive away from the city centre.


Greater Adelaide

You will also be delighted to find out that most tourist attractions and activities are only a quick drive away from the city centre. This means you can reach wine valleys, historical towns, immaculate beaches, unique hilltop villages, breath-taking landscape, and diverse wildlife, easily and quite quickly too.

The main tourist hotspot is the Glenelg Beach which is situated only 12 km away.


Bicycle tours
