On your visit to South Australia, you’ll want to visit all the important Adelaide attractions, so we’ve put together a list to get you started planning your amazing Adelaide adventure.
Just south of Adelaide, you’ll find the Adelaide Hills, a place that feels so removed from the city you’ll forget it’s only a 30-minute drive away. You’ll find small towns to wander through and gorgeous trees and plants to help you reconnect with nature. Find wineries and cellars to visit if you enjoy wine. Head to Hahndorf, the historic town full of German influences and German food & drink. Walk through the Cleland Conservation Park for the opportunity to turn the phone off and engage with nature. The Adelaide Hills is a great Adelaide attraction for anyone looking to take things a little bit slower.
When you think of Adelaide, you might not think of a wonderful beach, but Glenelg has just that. The long, sandy beach of Glenelg attracts tourists from all over for fun in the sun. The stunning, blue water and soft sand feels reminiscent of Mediterranean beaches.
Glenelg has plenty to keep everyone entertained. In addition to fun at the beach, you’ll also find bike tracks, walking trails, fishing charters, sailing, and more. Glenelg is the perfect Adelaide attraction to enjoy seaside fun in South Australia.
The Adelaide Oval
The Adelaide Oval is hailed as one of the most picturesque ovals, so if you’re interested in sports at all, it’s one of the must-see Adelaide attractions. Even if you’re not a sports fan, the oval is still a sight to behold. If you want to view the oval from a different vantage point, consider the Adelaide Oval RoofClimb. Climb the roof of the oval stands and even do yoga up there. It’s an incredible experience that gives you views of the oval and of Adelaide that you won’t find anywhere else.
The Barossa Valley
While Sydney is known for the Hunter Valley, Adelaide is known for the Barossa Valley. If you like wine, the Barossa Valley is a must-visit attraction. The valley is known for Shiraz wines, but you’ll find plenty of other varietals as well. Book a tour and let a professional take you to some of the most popular wineries and vineyards or go on your own and discover your personal favourites.
You can even find events to try blending your very own wine! If there’s no wine that stands out to you, you may as well make one that does. You’ll get to take the bottle home to enjoy with friends and family as a memento of your Adelaide adventure.
