A List of Things to Do in Adelaide During Summer - Best of the South

Adelaide, when it's drenched in summer sunshine, is the kind of place that has the power to make you blissfully happy. Look forward to a range of quintessential attractions from wine tasting sojourns across McLaren Vale to browsing colourful markets. Here's a list of things to do in Adelaide.


Hit the Market - Shop and Eat

The lively markets of Adelaide are not to be missed whether you are a dedicated shopper or focused foodie. Central Market is one of the best places for exploring the range of street food and indulging in some souvenir shopping. Best of all this is a covered market, the largest in the south, and perfect for beating the heat. The staggering array of stalls ranges over 400 with sellers from all parts of the world making up a colourful array of goods and food items. Central Market is just five minutes from Oaks Adelaide Embassy Suites, which is the perfect location for enjoying easy commutes to top attractions in Adelaide. This is one of the popular properties when looking for top Adelaide hotel deals.


Explore Adelaide Zoo

This zoo is home to giant pandas, the only place to see the adorable black and white bamboo lovers in Adelaide; however, these adorable pandas are not the only attraction in the zoo. You can even go there to check out the other residents including hippos, lions, and tigers from exotic corners of the world, promising to wow and thrill you together with the other residents of Adelaide Zoo.


Barbeque Along the River Torrens

There is no greater treat than a lazy float along the Torrens River to the delectable smell of a grill loaded with your favourites. The Adelaide BBQ Buoys are perfect for this and more. Each doughnut-shaped float is equipped with a barbeque grill, table, and Bluetooth facility. Oh, and a huge sun umbrella shields you from the sun, making this the perfect place to spend some private time with the one you love. Go ahead and plan that unforgettable date exploring the river and savouring your favourite grills.


Beerenberg Strawberry Picking

Beerenberg strawberries are some of the best out there. The family-owned business, operating since the 70s, is well established with chains across the globe. The farm located on Adelaide Hills is where you can purchase lovely jars of freshly made jams, the most popular in Australia. Go there to explore the farm and get your hands on a few jars of the freshly made jam.


Play with the Dolphins

Head over to Glenelg Beach, which is only 20 minutes from the Adelaide CBD. And from there, you can head out to the ocean in a catamaran. The tours last close to 3.5 hours and guarantee sightings of dolphins or your money back. However, there is such a large density of bottlenose dolphins in the area that your chances of not seeing any are slim. The friendly creatures often swim up to the vessel and display their cheerful curious nature to the delight of all.
