If you visit the city of Adelaide you will find many interesting things to do; these include taking a river walk, visiting the Adelaide Botanical Gardens, undertaking a heritage walk, viewing street art, and so on.


Take a river walk

On your stay in Adelaide, you will find that it is an appealing experience to take a relaxed stroll along the local river. In fact, a riverside walk in the morning will be a splendid way to commence your day. You are likely to feel that the river has a discernibly English atmosphere with the teams of rowers gliding across the waters and the pleasant riverside trees. You will also have the opportunity to enjoy a relaxed breakfast in a local cafe and undertake a cruise on the river on a 'Popeye' boat.


Visit the Adelaide Botanical Gardens

The Adelaide Botanical Gardens which occupies an area of 50 hectares amid the city, will attract the interest of garden enthusiasts, plant lovers and anybody who appreciates spending time outdoors. At these gardens, you will encounter a host of interesting attractions including rose gardens, a wetland and Australian forestland. The Adelaide Botanical Gardens is also renowned for its remarkable glasshouses. Within these three glasshouses, you will see an Australian rainforest environment, a selection of palms from Madagascar and a giant Amazon water lily.


Undertake a Heritage Walk

The city of Adelaide inherits a rich historical legacy and its fascinating architectural attractions confirm this. You will be entranced by the striking Town Hall and Parliament House as well as the city's statues, cathedrals and the scenic bridges that extend over the Torrens River. To experience these marvellous sights you will have the option of joining an organised tour or undertaking a stroll across the city on your own. Culture lovers will be captivated by Adelaide's engrossing historical buildings and other structures.
