Edged by the Mount Lofty ranges and the long white sands of the Gulf of St Vincent, the style of the city, influenced by Australia’s first free settlers, is still very much in evidence as gracious stone buildings pepper the streets and you will never stray far from open green parkland.

A great charm, and indeed calm, infuses the city and it can be easily explored on foot. The cultural center lies in a string of commanding public buildings that run between the grand, old tree-lined North Terrace and the River Torrens, while the north of the city is a lattice of blue stone cottages and thriving al fresco restaurants.

Adelaide Hills

The gorgeous Adelaide Hills, draped in steep vineyards amidst acres of bushland and bustling upcountry towns, are less than half an hour by car from the city and offer a superb alternative to a stay in the center itself.

Glenelg, reached by a vintage tramline, is a cheerful seaside resort where open-air cafés are set around a lovely swimming beach and is the ideal place to while away time.

The city prides itself on being the artistic capital of Australia, especially at the time of the acclaimed Adelaide Festival, and the Australian Aboriginal Cultures Gallery houses an extensive collection of artifacts and artworks.
