Five Fun-filled Things to Do in Adelaide, Australia – Where One Never Runs out of Things to Do!

The capital of South Australia, Adelaide, is a spectacular blend of scenic beauty and cultural intricacies. From the River Torrens that elegantly flows through the city to the activity galore abound, Adelaide offers you a wonderful respite from everyday life.

1

Hunt for Street Art

Melbourne is hailed as a timeless beauty for its magnificent murals and street arts. Nowadays, however, its status as the predominant city of street art in Australia is being contended by cities like Adelaide. You can have a fun day out strolling through Adelaide's back streets and alleyways to discover the best artwork in the city. By the stunning murals and paste-ups of immigrants who have made their lives in the city, the street artist Peter Drew makes one dwell upon what it means to be a true Australian. Moreover, indie culture and the Renaissance are portrayed through Lisa King's murals, who uses her painting for freedom of expression. What really blows one's mind is that these artwork remains respected and unspoiled, which isn't the case of the street art scene in other larger cities in the world.

Ride on a River Bank

Taking a refreshing walk along the banks of River Torrens is one of the best things one can indulge in a beautiful morning. Or even better- pick up free bikes from Adelaide Convention Centre and paddle through the Torrens Linear Trail! You will be captivated by the enchanting views of this river, as you ride your bikes towards the green mountains of Adelaide and back. The unrivalled beauty of nature will take your breath away as you whizz past the woodlands and parks with no soul in sight. Do remember to bring a bottle of water and a couple of snacks as you won't be coming across any kiosks in this area. It's the perfect way to get away from the constant buzz of city life.

Explore Botanical Gardens

Towards the Northeast corner of Adelaide is its lush garden galore, which has taken about 50 hectares of land surface to thrive as a flourishing space of flora. It was officially opened to the general public in 1857. Since then, it has been a massive attraction for tourists from near and far. Conveniently located closer to properties such as Avani Adelaide Residences, it is an excellent location to relax, rejuvenate, and enjoy some time outdoors, revelling in nature. Here, you will come across everything from stunningly beautiful rose gardens to a wetland that offers a sustainable water supply to the property through the year.

Say Hello to Animals

The second oldest zoo in the country, the Adelaide Zoo has welcomed tourists from all walks of life since its opening in 1883. While you're enjoying a stress-free vacation at one of the many Adelaide hotels in the area, most of which are situated adjacent to this place where over 3000 animals are housed, head over to experience an uninterrupted evening of enjoyment. Make sure that you don't forget to take some snaps of the gigantic Sumatran tigers, lazy orangutans, and especially the giant panda exhibit that feature the fluffy bears native to China.

Visit Chinatown

Located between Grote and Gouger streets of Adelaide is the country's Chinatown. You can look forward to tasting authentic Chinese food and hunting for rare trinkets at the many quaint shops you can see here. The main street is guarded by Chinese guardian lions that stand at either end. It's a fantastic place to be- especially during the Chinese New Year celebrations!
