Adelaide South Australia

  • Destination - Adelaide, South Australia

    With a population of slightly more than one million, Adelaide is the “20 minute city”. The airport is only seven kilometres from Adelaide city. The Adelaide Hills and major beaches are less than half an hour away by car. That’s what we call liveable!

    Adelaide is the "perfect host city" and is "ready to be uncorked"...so says Lonely Planet which named the South Australian capital as one of the top 10 must visit cities for 2014.

    "A gateway to some of Australia’s most accessible wine country, Adelaide is effortlessly chic – and like a perfectly cellared red, it’s ready to be uncorked and sampled," writes Lonely Planet.

    The city centre is surrounded by parklands and is a blend of historic buildings, wide streets, parklands, cafes and restaurants. Adelaide is easy to get around with rolling hills to the east and beaches to the west.

    Adelaide City - Getting Here and Around

    Plane, train or automobile

    Australia’s most liveable city is easy to reach and even easier to get around. Just seven kilometres from the city centre, a taxi ride from Adelaide Airport takes about ten minutes at most times. There are also regular shuttle buses.

    Travelling by car from the east? National Highway One is your easiest way into Adelaide by road. Take your time with the River and Wine self drive itinerary from Sydney or Melbourne, which includes the Murray River, Clare Valley and Barossa.
